The life and work of Shosh Kormosh present the viewer with a puzzling blend: she who lived her life in a passionate turmoil, expressed in her work a consuming state of desistance; and she who spoke and researched unceasingly, seeking to absorb and know everything, created a static space of stillness and silence. This contrast is essential for understanding the uniqueness of Kormosh’s personal experiment. It was precisely through the dynamic intensity of her physical presence in the world – tall and straight-backed, sharp-tongued and quick to react – a presence one couldn’t ignore or overlook, that she focused on the erasure of all signs and murmurs of life, and created a world devoid “of all remains of nostalgia, of desires or longing … an attempt to renounce the splendor of beauty and in exchange gain the splendor of death – or what in western culture is called eternity.”
