b. Haifa, Israel, 1973
Lives and works in Frankfurt am Main.
Reiser studied Fine Arts at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, and at the Academy of Fine Arts, Städelschule, in Frankfurt am Main.
Memorizing, memory, regarding places and things are the main questions his current work in Belfast deals with. The researcher’s aim is to try to see the extent to which a person can see every image, as well as every detail of information as far as the limits of abstractions is concerned. Seeing, remembering, watching until the point when one sees nothing.
Barak Reiser will be giving an Artist's Talk at 1pm, Wednedsay 25th January at the Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast.
