Angelika Sher
Series, 2005 - 2012

The raw material of Angelika Sher’s photographic work is supplied by her family and immediate environment. Personal relations and domestic spaces are captured in moments full of longing, remoteness, and a beauty that can hurt. Through these images she explores ideas of foreignness, adolescence, parenting, and sacrifice.

Angelika Sher, Series, 2005 – 2012 is a survey of Sher’s work over a seven year period, structured around four different series. Upstairs looks at adolescence without innocence and volatile sexuality as enclosed in claustrophobic spaces, with an underlying sense of unease and dissatisfaction. Growing Down looks at adolescents, at their relationships to each other, to space, and to the body. 13 continues the focus on motherhood, while also exploring a greater distance between the camera and its subject. The last series, Twilight Sleep, departs from the nuclear family to investigate notions of cultural memory, destiny, and death. Angelika Sher (b. 1969 in Lithuania), an Israeli photographer, graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and has established herself as a critically-acclaimed professional photographer through a series of exhibitions both in Israel and abroad.
