This two-part project reveals the multifaceted work of artist, writer and film director Roee Rosen (Rehovot, 1963). The exhibition “Histoires dans la pénombre” presents two major works – “The Blind Merchant” (1989-1991), an alternative version of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice told by a blind usurer and “Vladimir’s Night” (2011-2014), a political treatise on the dangers of fetishising an object – accompanied by a more recent film, “The Dust Channel” (2016), an operetta on purification in all its forms.
A retrospective of his films entitled “Sweet Sweat” also highlights the irony, or rather agility of Roee Rosen’s pieces on History, transforming fiction into a polemic space for current political questions.
