Born in 1970 in Afula, Israel, Yael Bartana lives and works in Tel Aviv and Amsterdam. Bartana’s films and photographs explore the conflicting value-systems that divide Israel. Her works capture small-scale rituals in public or semi-public spaces that range from the spontaneous manifestation to the organized gathering, exposing the ways in which these social events shape personal identities. Bartana strategically uses a subjective and often intimate vantage point, signaled through editing devices such as slow motion, in an attempt to elicit honest and personal responses from the viewer. In this way, her work aims to contrast and potentially reveal the state-sanctioned codes of conduct and systems of beliefs at work in her native country.

Yael Bartana has recently presented solo exhibitions at Annet Gelink Gallery, Amsterdam (2010), Modern Museum, Malmo, Sweden (2010), Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw (2009), Contemporary Jewish Museum of San Francisco, San Francisco (2009), Jewish Museum, New York (2009), P.S. 1, New York (2009) and Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleavland (2009). Her work has been shown in numerous museums and international exhibitions, including Documenta 12, Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel (2007), the
 27th Sao Paulo Biennial (2006) and the 9th Istanbul Biennial (2005). She has been short-listed for the Artes Mundi 4, Wales (2009), awarded the Prix Dazibao, Montreal (2009), the Gottesdiener Foundation Israeli Art Prize 2006 (2007), the Dorothea von Stetten-Kunstpreis from the Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn (2005) and the Anselm Kiefer Prize from The Wolf Foundation, Israel (2003).
