Shai Kremer World Trade Center: Concrete Abstract
September 4 – October 25

Opening reception: Thursday, September 11, 2014, 6-8 pm

Julie Saul Gallery announces Shai Kremer’s third solo show, timed to coincide with the opening of the new World Trade Center. An evocation of site, a remembrance of tragedy, a progression towards healing – Shai Kremer’s Concrete Abstract series at once aims for an individual and universal response to the destruction and rebuilding of the World Trade Towers. Like his past series, Kremer maintains “a post-traumatic gaze to the cityscape of Manhattan – and by extrapolation, to the sociological landscape of America.” Kremer combined copious images to illustrate the site’s former self as well as its years of reconstruction. Kremer uses a process linking “accumulation, destruction, and reconstruction” forming images which are formally and psychologically complex. Here he literally layers images within one frame, whereas in past work he expressed his vision through individual images.
