“Archaeology of the Unseen” is a solo exhibition that provides an overview of Yehudit Sasportas’s work from the past five years, including a new project shown in Germany for the first time. Through drawings, photography, film, sculpture, sound, and installations, Sasportas’s images of nature are conceptualized as imagined landscapes, representing the subconscious. The exhibition uses the entire space of Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven, as well as its front and back gardens, and includes a bilingual publication as well as an artist talk.
Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven is located in close proximity to a nature reserve in Restmoor Dreesberg, a location that has been integral and inspirational to Sasportas’ practice over the past 15 years. Presenting work by Sasportas in close proximity to the nature reserve, “Archaeology of the Unseen” draws connections between the local environment and the universal experiences that she examines in her work.
