Past Resident2022: Artis
Yael Frank is a multi-disciplinary artist working mainly in sculpture and video. Her satiric projects conceptually hack cultural and textual systems, arguing for emotional connections between historical memory and esoteric consumerist goods. Frank employs comedic strategies to expose multiple points of view on the precarious state of ethical concepts. Her work aims to test the seriousness of political ethos by orchestrating situations that are physically beyond language.
Yael Frank has exhibited work at The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel; The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; and FuturDome, Milano, among others.
