The exhibition situates Omer Fast’s four films, including: 

5000 Feet is the Best (2011), 30’

Continuity (2012), 40’

August (2016), 15’, 3D

The Invisible Hand (2018), 12’30”, 3D-VR 

In theatrical sets which partially reenact semi-public interiors of the residential compound that Times Museum is located, as well as generic, transitional spaces such as hotel and hospital corridors. The immersive and disorientating reconstruction of fiction and reality, and the restaging of continuity and rupture are also featured in the specific presentation of The Invisible Hand (2018). 

The version shown in Times Museum is a VR film installation that mirrors the surrounding environment of the museum with filmic scenes of the story.

Born in Jerusalem and grew up in New York, Omer Fast’s captivated cinematic languages and scenographic settings have not just pushed the boundaries between fiction and documentary in the realm of moving image, but also addressed and accommodated nuance, ambiguity and conflictual construction of truth and identity vis-à-vis the global crisis of representation and essentialist tendency. 

Known for his complex manipulation of images to investigate how experiences and memories are turned into aesthetic and political regime, Omer Fast recent projects critically deploy up-to-date apparatus with the convention of storytelling to challenge the presupposed progressiveness of technology and internet intermediacy.
