Born 1966, lives in Mevasseret, Jerusalem, and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. Hila Laiser Beja is a multidisciplinary artist, working in sculpture, installation, painting, drawing, video and etching. Her work deals with the sense of detachment and belonging, while examining recurring motifs of the home, the woman, wondering, private sphere vs. public, personal vs. national and more. Laiser-Beja’s sculptural installations and works on paper often use iron and rust, in order to show the fragility and disappearance of powerful materials and existence, and by that to contemplate about strength, desire, longevity and stability. The artist often uses the form of a grid that becomes tangled, disrupted.
Loosen foundations that hang by themselves, on the verge of collapsing, examine the tension between solid and the ephemeral.
