Omer Fast: Continuous Coverage
The Power Plant presents a solo exhibition of the work of critically-acclaimed Berlin-based artist Omer Fast. Fast (born 1972, Jerusalem) works primarily with video to test our understanding of media and examine how individual and collective histories interact.
Focusing on narrative structures and constructions, he mixes sound and image into stories that test the line between personal and media accounts of current events and history, particularly a recent history of war.
The exhibition includes three significant projects spanning the last decade that reveal his facility with, and critique of, the languages of media, cinema, documentary, and contemporary art. In his concern with the strategies of digital manipulation and perception, Fast’s work draws attention to the permeable boundaries between documentary and fiction.
