Yael Efrati

Yael Efrati (born 1978, Petah Tikva) is an MFA program graduate of Bezalel’s, and has a BA from the Department of Photography at Bezalel.

Her body of work consists mostly of objects and sculptures. At the same time, it clearly relates to a ‘photographic consciousness’. Her works capture everyday moments, while focusing on spatial situations and points of view. They shift from a private memory to a continuous existence description, mostly of an urban place and space.

For Efrati, the importance is not the object, but the way it evokes the memory, or in fact, the imaginative activation of the space, while emphasizing the relationship between the human, the architectonical structure and the place itself.

Efrati’s works have been exhibited in museums, galleries and biennales in Israel and around the world, among them: Kunsthalle Dusseldorf, The Center for Polish Sculpture Oransko, MNAC Bucharest, Art Encounters Timisoara, Biennial of Contemporary Art Cochin, Museu Colecao Berardo, Lisbon, Israel Museum, Tel Aviv Museum, Petah Tikva Museum, Herzliya Museum and more.

Efrati is the recipient of the Encouragement of Creation Award and the Young Artist Award from the Ministry of Culture, the Shmuel Givon Award from the Tel Aviv Museum, as well as the recipient of scholarships from Artis, the Ostrovsky Foundation and Mifal Hapais.

Her works take part in the collection of the Israel Museum, the collection of Tel Aviv Museum, and the Shoken Collection, as well as in private collections in Israel and around the world.

Currently she teaches in the photography department in Bezalel and the kibbutzim seminary.
