About tana azene

Tana Azene was born in Ethiopia and immigrated to Israel in 2003. She studied at Emuna College in Jerusalem. In her works Tana uses the public space to which she invades, in the same way that space and government intrude on life. In her works, she involves the viewer and makes it active and undermines the order of existence. Her ambition is to appeal to a diverse audience, to whom the art world is not accessible, and to succeed in bridging gaps and making them present in the space that tries to silence them.
