The problem of crossing a bridge

“No man ever steps into the same river twice, for its not the same river and he is not the same man” – Heraclitus.
Mindful of this understanding, Isabel Mertz presents an exhibit of the incomplete experience: a collection of prints and sculptures that explore her encounters with the seemingly un-mappable.

Viewers are invited to navigate a piecemeal journey, where no obstacle that may be overcome could serve as a key that would unlock the next challenge in the path. The exhibit maps the inevitability of conflict, lost opportunities and guides the viewer to find the beauty in unexplored trails.
