Inga Gallery is proud to announce the opening of Bianca Eshel-Gershuni’s solo exhibition.
Bianca Eshel-Gershuni is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the Ministry of Culture and Sport; The Discount Bank prize on behalf of the Israel museum; and the Ministry of Education award. A solo exhibition of her work at a gallery, at this point in her life, is an unusual and outstanding occasion.
Eshel-Gershuni began her artistic path in the 1960’s, but only began painting in the 1980’s. The oil paintings in this exhibition are the result of this period, and are exhibited here for the first time. Alongside the oil paintings, sculptures and reliefs produced during different periods will also be shown. Parallel to her painting, Eshel-Gershuni maintained a varied artistic practice, which included sculpture and jewellery, using both expensive and everyday materials, and blurring the distinctions between relief, painting, sculpture and jewellery through the intricate combinations that characterize her work.
In addition and specifically for the exhibition, Eshel-Gershuni exhibits packs of tarot cards, which she has drawn in recent years using computer programs and inspired by cards from the middle ages.
The topics of Eshel-Gershuni’s work are as relevant today as they were when she created them. With her honesty, and in a language unique to her in the Israeli art field, she exposes her guts: she is both crucified and bearing the cross; she is the one to weave the wreaths for her own grave; she is both the goddess and the high priestess.

The exhibition is accompanied by Ilanit Konopy's text.
