Miriam Naeh (ISR) – was born in Jerusalem. She works and lives between Tel Aviv and London. Graduated from Goldsmiths MFA in Fine Art, London (2018) and from Musrara School of Art, Jerusalem (2014). In her work she collects and assembles fragmental elements and situations from different territories, and makes a mixed arena of visual absurdness. She uses photography, video installation, ready-made, sculptures and recorded performance in order to appropriate and reshuffle the visual evidence that has been drawn from reality, thus creating an unreliable report which can shift its focus towards possible – possibly fictive – untold stories.
