Born in 1964, Hila Lulu Lin Farah Kufer Birim is one of the most riveting contemporary Israeli artists today. Working in versatile medias such as video, photography, installation, poetry and performance she focuses on the human body using herself as both subject and object. The exhibition catalogue of Ein Harod refers to her work as contemporary, subversive and post feminist and notes: “Enigmatic and full of paradox, her work fluctuates between the concrete and the illusionary, reality and fiction, the mundane and the esoteric, pleasure and pain. The morbid, decadent and attractive world emerging from her works is full of humor and irony, just as it contains a high degree of provocative personal expression…The work in Ein Harod entitled “She” is an installation of objects and mixed media (drawings and stickers) on a fragile tissue paper dipped in lacquer.” (Galia Bar Or, Hila Lulu Lin She, Mishkan Museum of Art, Ein Harod, 2007. https://museumeinharod.org.il/en/she/)
