OMER FAST – RECENT WORKS
Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art | Herzliya, Israel
curator: Joshua Simon
opening: 21.01.2012 | 8 pm
The exhibition SATELLITES: OMER FAST at the Herzliya Museum features a group of recent films and video installations. This is the first Israeli exhibition of works by Omer Fast (b. 1972, Jerusalem). The exhibition includes Fast’s latest film, 5000 Feet Is The Best (2011), as well as the video installation Nostalgia (2009) and the video work De Grote Boodschap (The Big Message, 2007). These three works present recent aspects of Fast’s oeuvre. The works are scattered throughout the museums like satellites, revealing the unique work processes and installation methods that Fast developed while engaging with documentary materials and fictional formats – including interviews and closed-circuit videos, TV shows and feature films, aerial photographs, and the type of impersonal, overview images associated with satellites.
