About the artist

I am an artist, poet, illustrator, and art lecturer. I was born in Moscow and came to Israel at the age of 22. I am a graduate of the Art College in Moscow and of the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem, and hold an M.A. degree from the "HaMidrasha Le'Omanut".


I took part in group exhibitions at the Israel Museum (2020), the Eretz Israel Museum (2020), the Bar-David Museum (2019), the RSUH Museum Center (Moscow, 2018), and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Plovdiv (2017).

I had solo exhibitions at the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art (St. Petersburg, 2020),the Janco-Dada Museum (2019), the Hanina Gallery (2018), the Artists’ House (Jerusalem, 2017), the Gallery of the David Yellin Academic College of Education (2016), and the New Gallery (Artists' Studios Teddy, Jerusalem).


I won the Shoshana Ish Shalom Art Award in 2019. My first book of poetry, Snow Ink, was published by Helicon-Afik Publications and won the Israeli Culture Minister's Prize for Beginning Poets in 2016.


I have been practicing soft sculpture, creating objects and placing them in space, or mounting them on walls.

I sew and arrange objects that expand our traditional living space, turning it into a large-scale, panoramic vision where, by playing with things, I push them outside the boundaries of conventional everyday experience.

This alters the traditional relationship between objects, their scale; and they become part of an expanded landscape, in which one can travel, moving ever further away and turning into a tiny speck on the horizon – while simultaneously also observing oneself without leaving one's room. In this way, I hope to recreate the sensation of overlapping "incompatible spaces" – which is familiar to us from virtual technology – using simple, "non-technological" means.


I build my sculptural works out of different parts, as a mosaic, in order to expand consciousness, set up a new situation, and create a poetic metaphor through minimal means.
