Catalogue Note

In impressive images, Yael Bartana's video works question the constitution of Israel's national and cultural identity, especially as reflected in its rituals and representation. Bartana adopts the role of aloof, critical observer of her country in her quest for more profound meanings and links between everyday occurrences and social conventions. She expresses her interest in the mechanisms of a country that prescribes an ideology and in the individual who applies it. She calls attention to that which underlies what we see, what is hidden in images and actions.
'I do not support the politics of Israel. But my childhood and memories are there. I could not make art about anything or anywhere else.'

Yael Bartana was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 2000-2001
She won the Anselm Kiefer Prize (IL) in 2003, the first prize of the Dorothea-von-Stetten-Kunstpreis (DE) 2004, the 2nd prize of the 2005 Prix de Rome (NL), the Israeli Art Prize (IL) 2006, the Prix Dazibao (CA) in 2009 and was shortlisted for the Artes Mundi 4 (UK) 2010.
