Ye’ela Wilschanski (b. Jerusalem, Israel) is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York. Her work explores ways in which architecture and communal beliefs may function as additional layers of restrictions on the body. An article of clothing may be worn by one person, but the codes that it reinforces suggest the presence of a chorus. Wilschanski received her MFA from Hunter College (2019). She studied at The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, while earning her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem (2014).
She has performed and exhibited at A.I.R Gallery, Arts on Site, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Spring/Break Art Fair, A4 Art Museum (China), Galeria Arsenal (Poland) Barbur Gallery (Israel) amongst others. Residency programs include MASH Dance House (Israel), Lake Studio (Germany), Aesthetics & Bias, Wroclaw (Poland). Awards include Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and ILYSM Artist Grant
