EspacesTemps.net, Works , Nov 2013

Based on the analysis of contemporary art works produced around the wall built by the Israelis around the West Bank, this paper addresses the issues of border crossing and of the norms that one needs to confront in order to pass the line...The examples developed here contribute, on one hand, to the debates on the performative power of border devices, and on the other, to the elaboration of the analysis of what is at stake in the relationship between in situ art works and movement.

Symbolic Israeli landscapes The artists’ work means more to the initiated.

By By Edward J. Sozanski INQUIRER ART CRITIC

phylli.com , Feb 2002

For her second exhibition of Israeli art, Cheryl Harper, curator at the Gershman Y, has chosen four artists who extract symbolic meaning from ordinary landscapes. Sharon Ya'ari, Ariane Littman-Cohen, Roi Kuper and Gal Weinstein don't merely describe their country's topography. Their images are suffused with historical, sociological and personal references meant to convey complex emotions about the country's ideals.
