Born in Israel, 1979

Lives & works in Tel Aviv, IL

 

A cinematic sculptor, enchanted by mysteries, by magic and by the gap between our bodies and the screen.

Cinema and fiction allows a choice to believe in illusions, artificial images and surreal ideas. To confront fakeness and yet to be drawn by it. 

My work aspires to contrast one's private experience with the collective, designed fantasy. I represent basic human longings via tools, methods and techniques that are inspired by science, conceptual art, and popular culture.
