Michal Rovner, 'Degel', 2004, Israeli & International Art, 18 December 2018

18 December | New York

In her video projection, Rovner captures gesture and human movement, transforming the figure into a moving hieroglyph. Reducing the human form to its most anonymous representation, and repeating it on a linear plane, the artist blurs the line between gesture and text. Rovner's innovative use of archaeology and technology merges the ancient and the new, sculpture and video, to create deeply informed contemporary multi-media experiences. Exploring the relationship between humans and their environment, Rovner captures the human experience in a new artistic language.
