I was born and raised in Sasa, a small Kibbutz in Northern Israel. At the age of 22 I moved to London, working as an apprentice for the architectural photographer Hélène Binet. It was during this time that I discovered my true passion for photography. After returning to Israel, I studied Photography & Digital media at Hadassah College in Jerusalem.
Questions of memory, identity and journey concern my works. I am using photography, writing and recorded performances and videoart, in order to disassemble and rebuild a story.
One of the main themes in my work throughout the years is the continuous exploration of my origins, physical and metaphorical landscapes. These are examined and revealed in an ambivalent atmosphere that is aesthetically beautiful, but at the same time exposes a world holding a secret, which becomes my own fantasy playground.
I showed in solo and group exhibitions in Berlin, Israel, Portugal and NY, and currently preparing my next solo exhibition in Berlin, in April 2017 which will deal with the shelters in my childhood place, through photography and videoart.
First thing I did - I had to put music when I entered the room and all the bags were on the floor. I had not unpacked anything. I was frantically looking for my old MP3 which I received years ago, I needed my sounds to fill the space quickly to put something on and begin to experience it as mine.
I thought I wanted to hear something in Hebrew but I was not sure. I did not find the MP3 so I played something else that was already installed on the computer.
I was cold at night, I woke up early as I predicted. On that first night I did not dream, I do not know what it means. The daylight was coming on, I could tell the hour. I saw the minutes lifted by the northern light coming into the room softly, as if politely saying hello I'm here. It was not an act of aggression, it was thoughtful and gentle. It came in and began to fill the walls. I could see through the window a tree and a red house, I also saw a piece of sky. It was like shooting an ideal composition of a one-third and two-thirds picture. I was cold, but satisfied with the progression of my first morning light here.
