Sharon Lockhart came across the archive of Noa Eshkol in Holon in 2008 during a trip to Israel. She consequently developed the video works and photographs that constitute this complex work drawing on her intensive research of this until now little known chapter of dance history and in close collaboration with Eshkol’s pupils, who continue their daily dance practice until today.
The catalog Sharon Lockhart | Noa Eshkol accompanies the eponymous exhibition at TBA21 – Augarten in Vienna by Sharon Lockhart (November 23, 2012–February 24, 2013) which consists of a complex installation of videos, photographs, and archival material, composing a subtle and sensuous portrait of the Israeli choreographer, dancer, researcher, and textile artist Noa Eshkol (1924-2007). The book features nine essays, installation photographs of the works on show, film stills, archival material from the Noa Eshkol Foundation (notations, journals, notes), and wall carpets by Noa Eshkol.
