Ravid Freedman was born in 1994 in Herzliya, Israel. She graduated her BFA studies with honors (summa cum laue) at the Department of Multidisciplinary Art of Shenkar College in 2017.
Ravid’s work consists of sculpture, video and installation. In her work she deals with issues of ideal, identity and definition, in the fields of body, gender, religion, social status, and “glocal” culture in Israel. In installations, Ravid combines sculptural elements that imitate material features with video projections built from the combination of internet sources and original video productions.
The various images that were composed in her work leak out of the official narrative context. This allows her to attach images by theme, visual imagery or internal experiences, but also to arouse aesthetic and associative interruption as a critical artistic practice.
