This exhibition is dedicated to artist Omer Fast. Omer Fast has been exhibiting in several biennale and solo shows, his work consists in exploring boundaries between "reality" and "representation" often using moving images as medium.

Fast is above all a storyteller. His way of constructing stories – his mastery of form, of narrative modes and of point of view – transcends his subject matter. While his work tackles political, geopolitical and historical issues, it is given meaning by his use of narrative and its effects. For the last fifteen years Fast has been continuously telling stories as a way of investigating the status of the image.

While Fast’s stories are often rooted in documentary, their construction are non-naturalistic and resist the temptation of any conclusion or revelation of some ultimate “truth”.

Omer Fast investigates the relationship between the individual and the social group, together with the way events are transformed into memories and stories, and their modes of circulation and media coverage. Fast investigates the way events are transformed into memories and stories, together with their modes of dissemination and media coverage.
