Journeys by Emily Lazerwitz

Journeys by Emily Lazerwitz
Emily Lazerwitz, Prime Guides, 2015, found books and sharpie, image courtesy of the artist.

art:i:curate artist Emily Lazerwitz is among the artists featured in 'Your Jewish Museum: Journeys', the second in a series of crowd-sourced exhibitions that the Jewish Museum organises in partnership with the Cultural Institute at King’s College in London.

 

Journeys – how do we trace, interpret and represent them? 

 

A selection of over 25 objects will be displayed in the Jewish Museum’s Welcome Gallery alongside treasures from its Judaica collection. The objects tell stories from around the globe, including South Africa, Yemen, Ethiopia and the Ukraine, and across many cultures and religions.

 

Personal mementoes, historic artefacts and fine art become testimonies of all sorts of journeys undertaken by human beings – physical, spiritual and emotional. 

 

Emily Lazerwitz's Prime Guides represent the journey one undertakes to understand the complexity of language. Through an incredibly and quite literally close reading of words seeks for the truth that goes beyond the strict lines of the two texts. The viewers are forced to take a closer look at and really study the words on the page while being hyper aware of the fact that there is so much that they cannot grasp.

 

Emily Lazerwitz is a visual artist living and working in London. She holds a BA in Fine Art from Columbia University in New York and is currently pursuing a MA in Fine Art at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. She has exhibited in solo and group shows including 'Journeys', Jewish Museum (London, 2015); 'Curated by NoLIta', The Nolitan Hotel (New York, 2014); 'Speculative Future', A-Side B-Side Gallery (London, 2014); and the 'Columbia University Senior Thesis Show', LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies (New York, 2014).
