Bracha Lichtenberg Ettinger Artworking
[Tentoonstellingscatalogus]. Palais des Beaux-Arts Brussel.
Look at this painting, at these parts in dialogue with each other. It is like listening to silence which forces us to ask questions. Like a subversive murmur which emerges onto a threshold where we are afraid.
Bracha’s art work is composed of shocks. Its gravity comes from daring to stage in art the horrendous relations between modernity and the holocaust. Its tenderness derives from the traces of a child of our time in pain, and working through the grief of our time.
In attempting to conjoin these registers and their referents on the field of Painting, this work radicalises and redefines Feminism…
The importance of the work of the artist is evidently its relations to the question of memory; it is a work of anamnesis, but not only of a historical past, but also of color itself and of painting itself.
And so, l express my admiration.
