BOOK LAUNCHING EVENING
"Ezekiel's World" is published in "COHEL" publishing house.
Cohel publishing house is a collective of artists (writers, poets, musicians, visual artists, performance artists) who promote their work through mutual support and collaborative projects.
"Ezekiel’s World is a harrowing-yet-healing effort to confront and explore the inherent tragedy of survival, trauma and memory, of aging and above all, of father-son relationship. With a unique blend of intense visual representation and sparingly-used text, Israeli artist Michael Kovner attempts to engage his seemingly strong, aloof, and inflexible father, Abba Kovner – a resistance fighter and partisan in the Holocaust, a well-known poet and historian – in what he calls a 'posthumous dialogue, a dialogue that regrettably remained incomplete in his lifetime.' Ezekiel’s World is an important and haunting document, psychologically and historically as well as artistically."
