Yael Bartana

Yael Bartana (1970)

Lives in Berlin. Works in Berlin.

Yael Bartana is a video artist who explores the imagery of cultural identity. In her photographs, films and installations Bartana critically investigates her native country's struggle for identity. Her early work documents collective rituals introducing alienating effects such as slow-motion and sound. In her recent work the artist stages situations and introduces fictive moments into real existing narratives.
