The Jewish Film Festival in Vienna
I'm happy to share that my video installation You Don't Have To Do a Thing is now exhibited in The Jewish Film Festival in Vienna, and will be projected on October 14t at 15:30, so if you're in the area - I very much recommend a visit.
We can learn from human history that walls of thought sometimes lead to the building of physical walls. The negative effects of thought often create hatred and exclusion against groups in a society. The curating team detected a link between the festival's topic and my work, for it examines people's reactions to sound, associated with three different major cultures and religions: Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.
For more details, please visit the festival's website (German).

Artist Residency in Virginia
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.
