Yael Bartana Videos & Photographs
Essays by Galit Eilat and Charles Esche.
Yael Bartana (born in 1970 in Israel) makes work largely about her conflicted homeland. She has an exceptionally sensitive eye for public ritual and ceremony, both organized and spontaneous. Her videos document such moments, often slowing them down or editing them in ways that focus on the intimate actions that define a person's public persona and private uncertainties.
