Ori Gersht's photos and videos startle, seduce, and sometimes explode. Gersht's painterly image, "Pomegranate," almost looks like the 17th century original by Juan Sánchez Cotán that it is based on. Almost, until the image starts to move. Many of Gersht's works incorporate traces of his childhood in Tel Aviv with their explosive climaxes that acknowledge the violence of the modern world. In Hebrew, the word for "pomegranate" is the same as "grenade."
