Noa Yekutieli’s work explores tensions between shared human experiences complicated by cross-cultural perspectives through a variety of craft mediums such as paper-cutting, handwoven textiles, and site-specific installation. Through images of landscapes and disasters, the artist examines universal patterns of destruction, loss, trauma, and memory, drawing on personal experiences as an Israeli-Japanese-American and considering conflicts related to assimilation and immigration. By incorporating patterns from various cultural contexts, Yekutieli attempts to investigate human systems in the emotional and political realms.
Noa Yekutieli has exhibited work at Contemporary Art Museum of Rosario, Argentina; Kunstmuseum Ahlen, Germany; and Nakanojo Biennale, Japan, among others.noayekutieli.com
