Tamir Sher’s Mars #8 (2007).Image courtesy of the artist and Point of View Gallery, New York.
Tamir Sher imagines a slightly off-kilter homecoming, modeling photographs of her native Tel Aviv after shots taken on an expedition to Mars. The tenement-like structures and eerie, postapocalyptic emptiness suggest a bleak future for both planets. Happy New Year, everyone! The exhibition is up at Chelsea’s Point of View Gallery through tomorrow. —Rachel WolffArtist Tamir Sher Says There’s Life on Mars, But It’s Kind of Dull
