About Marcelle Tehila Bitton

Marcelle Tehila Bitton was born in Montreal, Canada. Currently lives in Jerusalem and has an artist studio in Art Cube Artists' Studios Jerusalem.
She graduated with honors Fine Arts studies at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem (2019), an additional degree in English (2014), teachers' seminary and cinema studies.

Bitton works across diverse mediums such as installation, video, drawings, 3D interactive graphics, writing, social innovations and creative content.
She often deals with questions of glamor and value, related to gender games, attribution and belonging- through Kabbalistic customs and myths to canons of beauty, luxury, and hierarchical criteria within political and socio-cultural systems.

Bitton revolves around the issue of character portrayal, entering the character and mantle the character as an act whose implementation challenges the difference between the artistic representation and life itself. Therefore, she wonders about the interval of freedom and expression in the embodied set of forces in this relationship, which works for the appropriation and rewriting of traditions, and incarnations of identities.

Bitton has exhibited in festivals and exhibitions, such as Museum on the Seam (2018), Jerusalem Artists' House (2021); JCC Manhattan; Edmond de Rothschild Center (2019), the International Student Film Festival (2020), Jerusalem Cinematheque (2022) and more.
Bitton received the Solo Exhibition Scholarship - Mifal Hapayis Council of Culture and Arts (2018), A Young Artist - America-Israel Foundation, and Recanati-Cope-Rashi Award (2021).
