The Sota Project Project Comes to LA!

Friday, August 17th, 2012

New York Six Points Fellow Ofri Cnaani’s The Sota Project is coming to LA this Fall!

The Sota Project, which will be at the USC Fisher Museum of Art, is an immersive, multilayered video installation that reenacts a controversial text from the Talmud. A tale of two sisters, bound together in symbiotic loyalty that unfolds in both time and three-dimensional space. The piece invites viewers to step into room-sized moving panoramas, and walk through an enigmatic and disturbing ancient story that has hardly been told.

Sota, an anonymous Biblical story, recounts the tale of two sisters, Sota and Bekhorah, who are bound together in symbiotic loyalty when Sota’s husband accuses her of infidelity. Against a backdrop of jealousy, betrayal, judgment, ritual humiliation, and ultimately death, Cnaani’s installation depicts a deceptively simple moral parable that unfolds in countless ways.

Video projections on all four walls of the exhibition space will allow multiple narratives to develop concurrently, thus calling into question the notion of a single, coherent truth. The Sota Project uses the most current new media technologies while employing storytelling techniques inspired by ancient Greco-Roman murals and Renaissance tapestries.

More information about the Soto Project can be found here.

On Sunday, October 7, 2012 The USC Fisher Museum of Art, Artis and the Foundation for Jewish Culture invite you to attend The Sota Project: Women in ConTEXT a panel discussion from 2 – 3.30 PM and the Opening Reception immediately following from 3.30 – 4.30 PM. Galleries will open early at 1:00pm for a preview of The Sota Project.

The exhibition runs from Sunday, October 7, 2012 – Saturday, December 1, 2012.
