Sally Krysztal Kramberg - Co-Creator, HB Exhibition & Pavilion
is a multidisciplinary artist, born in Paris, and based in Tel-Aviv. She graduated from the Midrasha Beit Berel College of Art, yet studied various practices and skills including Photography and Jewelry, while acquiring skills in hand made crafts from various cultural traditions.Her works are often defined by images based on self-portraits, however the figurative representation merely serves as a point of departure from which ways of interpreting the "self" off to freer avenues, exploring wider psychological and social questions regarding gender, tradition and social structure, often from the standpoint of an immigrant or outsider. Applying a sensual, craft oriented and conceptual approach, her videos, multimedia work and performances carry a hybrid nature, and a haunting quality drawing from the tension of the individual opposed to the group. Sally’s works have been exhibited in various venues, galleries and museums in Israel and abroad , and are part of established collections such as the Israeli Museum and Brandes collection. https://www.sallykrysztal.com/
