Jerusalem-born artist Einat Amir works in the media of video installations and live performances. She studied at Hamidrasha School of Fine Art, Beit Berl College and later received her MFA in Visual Arts from Columbia University. Amir’s works function as research of human interactions that explore the possibilities inherent in everyday communication between people. They are partly staged, partly improvised, partly real-time, partly pre-recorded. She sees her studio as a “lab of emotional research” where she experiments in creating interactions that blend the notions of authenticity, fabrication, and manipulation.
Amir’s work has been shown internationally, at venues including: MoMA PS1, New York (2009); PERFORMA, New York (2009, 2013); Manifesta 12, Palermo (2018); Palais De Tokyo, Paris (2011); MAXXI National Museum of Rome (2016); Istanbul Museum of Modern Art (2013); NGV Triennial, Melbourne (2018); the 6th Thessaloniki Biennale (2017); Whitechapel Gallery, London (2013); The Kitchen, New York (2010); Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde, Denmark (2012); Bergen Kunsthall, Norway (2018); Dallas Contemporary Art Center, Texas (2011); Tel Aviv Museum (2016); The Israel Museum (2018); Fondation D’entreprise Ricard, Paris (2012); and Lilith Performance Studio, Malmö, Sweden (2011); among other venues.Read more
