Angelika Sher: The Song of Deborah at JCC Manhattan

September – December 2019

The Laurie M. Tisch Gallery will be showing selected works, including many from her series The Song of Deborah, which explores changes in her daughter, after she enlisted in the IDF. In The Song of Deborah, Sher presents a series of works that explore the mental and emotional changes in her daughter, Debby, and Debby’s friends, who enlisted in the IDF when they turned 18. The series also reflects the change that took place in the artist as she revisited issues she herself explored when she was the same age as her daughter is now.

Also on view are earlier works which address her own complex identity and relationship to her home country and culture.
