Susanne Kessler, Jerusalem, 2015.
Installation at American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center, 27' 8" x 18' 5" x 8' 4"

Jerusalem Hebrew script

Exhibition Overview

Tracing the lines of the city map of Jerusalem with pencil or wire, again and again, like a mantra or prayer, allows Susanne Kessler to feel close to Jerusalem—the city of mankind. A city where three monotheistic religions come together, Jerusalem is a geographic gateway between the East and the West, a place where conflicts have influence on the world. Kessler's exhibition will speak to its architecture to bring forth the ideas of transparency, continuity, difference and conflict in a passage-like environment.
