TWO UPCOMING TEL AVIV EXHIBITIONS

Last September I had the pleasure of being a part of the Home Base Project Residency program in Tel Aviv, directed by Anat Litwin. Together with ten additional artists the program explored different ways of relating to the city, neighbourhood and residents. 

 

On November 7th 2019 the new work I have created will be presented as part of the LOVE ART, MAKE ART 2019 festival in Tel Aviv. It will be part of a group show called “IRUACH - Artistic Hosting in the City” which will take place in Hagra Center, Tel Aviv. Please click here for details (in Hebrew). 

Later this month, on November 28th 2019, I will participate in another exhibition titled “Fantasy” as part of the 7th edition of Israel Photo Festival. I will attend the opening and take part in a panel discussion on December 6th at 11am. More info can be found here

In July 2018, I participated in the “Experimental Film Virginia” Artist in Residency program, situated in Cape Charles, Virginia, USA. The residency was an ideal place for me to create two new projects: The video project You're Gorgeous, You're Mad which was completed during the residency, and a new ongoing photography project.

The video is‪ a series of intimate audio, video and textual confessions, depicting people who take an intense and revealing look at who they are. 

 

The new photography series is composed of portraits of local people standing on a bright white cube against a background of local scenery. The white cube is a stage, a symbol, and an object encompassing multiple meanings and elements.
