Yael Bartana’s (Kfar Yehezkel, 1970) films, installations and photographs explore the imagery of identity and the politics of memory. Central to her works are the meanings implied by terms such as “homeland,” “return,” and “belonging,” which Bartana investigates these through the ceremonies, public rituals, and social diversions that are intended to reaffirm the collective identity of the nation state. From 2006 to 2011, Bartana created the trilogy And Europe Will Be Stunned, which represented Poland at the 54th Venice Biennale (2011). Her recent work includes Inferno (2013), True Finn (2014), Pardes (2015), Simone The Hermetic (2015) and Tashlikh (2017).
