Gili Lavy works with large-scale projections and immersive video installations. She is inspired by how socio-political conditions affect cultural identity, and the land where they exist. Lavy’s work focuses on the relics, on glimpses and fractions of time, on post-traumatic states, on what is left, missing or sensed, on what narratives the land might reveal. How does change in collective histories manifest in the world around us, in the long term?
Lavy holds a Master degree from the Royal College of Art, London in Contemporary Art Practice. Between 2018-2020 Lavy awarded international prize as part of Talent Prize 2020 Italy, took part in Biennale Arcipelago Mediterraneo in Palermo, Italy, received exhibition support from Outset Contemporary Art Fund, England Arts council to name a few.
