Artist's Statement

The series explores the dichotomy between the collective and individual identities, between the need to belong and the will to be different and special. The work stems from being born and raised in a kibbutz, a communal society in which the Kvutza (age group) was an all-round unit sharing everything. The intensive nature of this upbringing created a strong connection and dependence between the children that magnified the identity conflict. The private self encompasses our unique traits, beliefs, and skills. The collective self, includes all the qualities that spring from our membership in social groups. The work takes the form of an installation. It pairs acrylic painted self portraits in diverse time periods with corresponding original video footage, establishing a multi-level dialogue of material and light, intimate and public, static and dynamic, subjective and objective.
