Chaja Hertog (1978) and Nir Nadler (1977) are a Dutch-Israeli artist-duo based in Amsterdam.
Their collaborative work spans the spectrum of time-based disciplines from performance and spatial installation, to photography and film.
The departure point for most of the duo’s work is the body, with its physicality, identity, violence, intimacy and the changes it undergoes through the passage of time.
Apart from their partnership in art, Hertog and Nadler are also partners in life.
Much like their different background, their work is an attempt to rework two ideas and approaches into a single vision with a dialectic meaning.
Hertog Nadler both graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2006 (Audiovisual department). Hertog then received her M.F.A in 2011 from the ArtScience department of the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague, and Nadler received his M.F.A in 2012 from DasArts, Master of Theater, in Amsterdam.
