Jo Israel - Betwixt

Silverhill Press Catalogue

A catalogue to accompany the debut solo exhibition of Jo Israel, revealing hidden worlds embedded in paper and glass. With an introduction by John Stezaker. An interview with Jo Israel about her work.

'Israel is a collector. She hoards paper, illustrated books, old photographs, glass slides, miniatures, diorama boxes, anything in which she detects the presence of an aura.

She haunts neglected museums, churches and monasteries in search of the same ineffable ghosts, traces not so much of human presence but perhaps of their absence.'
