Michal Rovner

Born in Tel-Aviv, female artist Michal Rovner completed film, television and philosophy studies in her hometown followed by the programme at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. Since 1988 she lives and works in New York. Rovner received the honorary doctorate from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 2008. In 2010, she was appointed ‘Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres’. In 2005, Rovner has presented some of her works at the Venice Biennale. Rovner reinterprets historical memory and contemporary themes through her multimedia practice, in which she employs drawing, printmaking, video, sculpture, and installation. By recording and erasing visual information, where specifics of time and place are obscured, her works become gestural, layered, and abstract reflections on the continuum of human experience. Michal Rovner is internationally known with exhibitions at major museums, including the Louvre and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

“ I always start with reality, in anything I do, everything I do, I always start from something real. „
