Facts on the Ground.

Photographs by Shimon Attie.
Nazraeli, Paso Robles, CA, USA, 2016. In English. 68 pp., 22 four-color plates and 3 gatefold illustrations, 9½x14½".

Publisher's Description

For this important and timely body of work, Shimon Attie created thirty dramatic and enigmatic site-specific installations across Israel and Palestine. He fashioned and installed custom-made light boxes featuring illuminated texts at each site, the works specifically staged in order to be photographed. Rich with ambiguity, the phrases resist interpretation, while pointing to some of the psychological, cultural, and political anxieties at stake in present day Israel and Palestine. Featuring multiple gatefolds, this beautifully-produced monograph includes 22 full-page color plates, with an introduction by Mieke Bal, an essay by art historian Gannit Ankori and architect/artist Samir Srouji, and a poem by Maureen N. McLane.

Shimon Attie is an internationally renowned visual artist, whose work spans photography, video, site-specific installations, public projects, and new media. Attie's work has been exhibited and collected by numerous museums, including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Jewish Museum, New York, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. In addition, he has received many visual artist fellowships and awards, including a Guggenheim, The Rome Prize, a Radcliffe Institute fellowship from Harvard University, and the Lee Krasner Lifetime Achievement Award.
