Leehoru by Nimrod Gershoni
Thursday and Saturday, August 8 and 10 at 7 pm
Leehoru is a performance work in which Nimrod Gershoni combines pre-recorded and improvised video and sound with live music. It is carried out through an installation akin to a control room, where Gershoni slowly reveals the mechanisms leading to the failure of contemporary masculinity.
Nimrod Gershoni (1982), lives and works in Tel Aviv, holds a master’s degree from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design Jerusalem, (2014) and a Bachelor’s degree from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2011).

Gershoni is a recipient of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem (2014) and received a grant from the Yehoshua Rabinowitz Foundation for the Arts, Tel Aviv (2016).

This event is being held as part of a series of public programs organized in conjunction with the exhibition “Stumbling Through the Uncanny Valley: Sculpture and Self in the Age of Computer Generated Imagery”, and it will take place at the Shelter for Contemporary Art. The performance was first conceived for Third Floor on the Left by Meital Aviram.
