Batia Shani //
presented by Tamar Dresdner Art Projects, Tel Aviv
Booth Number C8
Batia Shani creates the site-specific installation 'Tissue'. The Hebrew word 'rikma' references this and translates to 'needlework', which the artist has been doing since she was a child. The installation reflects the ongoing political instability in the Middle East. By combining gendered outfits — male army uniform scraps stitched into handmade dresses — Shani explores shifting identities, exploitation of authority, and the overall cycle of confusion caused by areas in constant flux.
