Adi Shalmon, Masada, from the Holylandscape series, 2010

You are kindly invited to the opening of the Adi Shalmon’s exhibition Holylandscape in Kamnik

Saturday, 2 June at 8 pm

Dom kulture Gallery Kamnik

The myth of the “holylandscape” has been shaped over time by historical truth and ever-changing interpretations. Jerusalem is composed of multiple layers: layers of history, faiths and beliefs, of rulers and subjects and of social complexity.

All have left their imprint on the landscape. It is a landscape that has been scarred by centuries of power struggles, and inscribed by the testimony of its inhabitants who discovered in it the roots and wellsprings of their faith. Being the sixth generation of my family in Israel, and the fourth living in Jerusalem, has shaped my perceptions of the city. On the one hand, I grew up with the historical stories and myths of the land and on the other; I am enthralled by its charm, mystique and the beauty of the landscape.

Exhibition is on show until 1 July 2012
