I’m a multidisciplinary artist and engineer. I work in installation, sculpture, printmaking and video. I make work to explore and understand the place I’m living in geographically, socially, and politically as Mizrahi Jewish, female identifying artist. I work around instances of contemporary culture I recognize as structural failures and focus on the tension between history and ideology to expose local symptoms of global conditions. I study the relationships between private and public space and look at how power, violence and models of failed masculinity shape narratives.
