Los Angeles, 13 April 2012, Art Media Agency (AMA).
In collaboration with the Israel Museum of Jerusalem, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art will be presenting the latest works by Sharon Lackhart in the exhibition, “Sharon Lockhart/Noa Eshkol,” which will take place from 1 June to 9 September 2012.
Lockhart was inspired by Israeli choreographer and textile artist Noa Eshkol who created an innovative notation system capable of describing practically all perceivable movements of the body. In this exhibition, an installation composed of five films displays Eshkol’s unknown creations. There is additionally a selection of carpets and archived drawings by Eshkol as well as a series of photographs portraying her work.
Born in 1964, Sharon Lockhart is an American photographer, filmmaker, and contemporary artist. She discovered Noa Eshkol’s work during a residency in Israel in 2008.
Noa Eshkol is more recognised for having developed the Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notation (EWMN) system, with architect Avraham Wachman during the 1950s. This systems defines the movement of each part of the body thanks to a combination of numbers and symbols. With this system, Eshkol has developed choreographed performances.
