Hally Pancer


From Elvis Presley Boulevard to his own street, Hally Pancer asks for directions, sometimes pretending to be lost. A pretext to start the meeting, to share a moment with strangers. Open road is a series of two works from 1986 to 1993: America and Some Arabs and Some Jews, in the United States and then in Israel, where she settled in 1988 during the first Intifada, Hally Pancer explores the daily lives of people who are often overwhelmed by their environment. His photographic impulse is closer to poetry than to documentary essay. Their interest lies elsewhere, beyond social and community affiliations. Hally Pancer questions the affects that people’s attitudes towards their own condition have on her. In a precise distance, she looks at the human being caught between resistance and resignation.
