"All art springs out from an invitation, real or imaginary," says Esther Shalev-Gerz. The development of her art projects is closely linked to the spaces and places that have sought her and which become part of the work. Thus, space (institutional, political, historical, geographical) is occupied by both the work and reflected by it in order to reelaborate the space within the framework of a dynamic relationship with the public. For over 20 years, the work of this tireless pilgrim of memory has focused on interventions and projects rooted in the history of places and cities the mnemonic density of which is constantly threatened by oblivion: Buchenwald, Auschwitz, Lapland, but also Berlin, Dublin, Gothenburg, Glasgow. Oblivion paradoxically often caused by excessive symbolic commemoration.
