Jericho Moons by Eitan Ben-Moshe, Book launch on October 25th at 6pm at Formats

October 25, 2012 – October 25, 2012

Montreal (Quebec)

Sternthal Books is pleased to announce the publication of Eitan Ben-Moshe’s book “JERICHO MOONS.” The book is the third to be released by Sternthal Books, and its publication coincides with a book launch party that will be hosted by Formats Bookshop in Montreal on October 25th from 6-8PM. The launch will feature the screening of a film by the artist, as well as a lecture about his work delivered by Ian Sternthal, and a live skype Q&A with the artist.

Jericho Moons presents the semi-psychadelic world of Eitan Ben-Moshe’s creations in a visionary concept: The book is a catalogue of the artist’s future works, as opposed to a straight documentation of his past creations. The images presented are interspersed with the artist’s idiosyncratic poetry, providing a framework that takes the reader on a journey that moves between straight documentation of his work, and digital collages that transform his sculptures and lightboxes into new environments where they are stripped of scale and context, and freed from the constraints of their materiality. This back and forth calls into question traditional understandings of temporality, while simultaneously imagining entirely new realities.

The books brings together various of the artists projects, including his work as a tailor, where he conducts interviews with strangers, and then offers otherworldly forms as relevant pieces of beauty for the homes of people he doesn’t know. A recent project in London involved consultations with local shamans, who directed the artist towards energy breakages throughout the city, where he installed small sculptures called ‘Ozone Flutes.’ The project is both a symptom of distress, as well as an attempt at healing


Ben-Moshe’s work presents undefined and skeletal works that expose the things that lie underneath. He is an artist whose work straddles a borderline - exposing that which the body knows how to react to long before the mind does.
