Benyamin Reich

Berlin, DE

Transfixed by the paradoxes of the religious conservatism he grew up with, Benyamin Reich (b. 1976, Israel) examines an essential Jewish story, creating an inherently spiritual yet contemplative modern retelling of his own design. Composed studies reveal an austere and beautiful world of rituals and sanctified objects; tevila washing ceremonies, challah bread and ceremonial clothing. Reich’s homosexuality and resettlement in Europe offered further impetus to reflect on his faith and his projects unite through a revealing of various grey areas that weave through Jewish identity and history.
