Portfolio Presentation: Orit Ishay (ISR)
• Days with event
Meeting Point: MQ Courtyard 7, Studio 501
EIKON has invited Orit Ishay, an Israeli photo, video and installation artist, to be Artist-in-Residence at quartier21/MQ in November. As part of the VIENNA ART WEEK, the artist will give the interested public an insight into her current work: during her stay in Vienna, Ishay will shoot photographs and videos and combine them with pictures she has taken in her home country of Israel and around the world to form “fragments of life.”
New images are combined and melded with old ones; over time, a new location develops, which could be anywhere and nowhere in equal measure, and which is a metaphor for ever-present globalization. Through her actions, the artist seeks to break open political and social structures and discuss issues of time and space.
