The series of hands presented in this exhibition are disembodied, with all traces of ethnicity and intent stripped away. Each hand is dissociated from identity, yet they all draw from an intimate and shared human experience.
From this vantage of limited context, Igal Hodirker asks, "what do we really see?" Pain or pleasure? Victim or saint? Innocence or exploitation? Life Lines is a visual study of disconnection and connection, explicit and implied, public and private.
