Curated by Monica Holmen, The Space Between Here and There presented work by artists Ariel Reichman and Siri Hermansen produced after residencies in Jerusalem. The conflict zone formed an underlying note to the exhibition, yet the artists’ gazes brought the viewers elsewhere. The exhibition explored the area between the extremes – “the space between”. Consequently, the artworks could be seen as means to try to understand human strategies for survival, tied to universal circumstances. Not least, it was an attempt to bring forth other perceptions and perspectives in a conflict dominated by polarized depictions.
