Jerusalem Road

1990, 3 min, color, sound

Jerusalem Road is a highly charged work created in response to conflicts in the Middle East. Shot during a residency at Israel's Beersheva Institute of Art, the melting, shifting images &mdash ancient cities and countryside, old and young men &mdash eloquently articulate the deep political and religious schisms of modern Israel. Gorewitz heightens the sense of ancient regional conflict and history with an underlying soundtrack of Hebraic chanting, recorded in the chambers under Jerusalem's Temple Wall.
