Structure of Emotion

with Keren Cytter


Keren Cytter was born in Tel Aviv, Israel and lives in New York. She studied art at the Avni Institute for Art in Tel Aviv and, with a scholarship, at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. Since then she has developed a large body of work including a number of films and video suites, theatrical plays, published three novels, and established D.I.E Now, a theatre company whose name stands for Dance International Europe. Her work often results in an elaborated display of emotions in human communication and relationships where the line between comic and tragic and between fiction and reality is blurred. Her work was already honoured with solo exhibitions worldwide, more recently at Pilar Corrias in London (Ocean, 2016), Mathew Gallery in New York (Panoramas, 2016), Künstlerhaus Halle für Kunst & Medien in Graz (Keren Cytter Selection, 2016) and Noga Gallery in Tel Aviv (Here and There, 2015). Furthermore, her work was included in group exhibitions, to name but the most recent ones – at Void Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland (Nothing But Longing, 2017), Frankfurt Portikus (House of Commons, 2016), Kunsthalle Wien (Political Populism, 2015), Kunstpalais Erlangen (Affects, 2014), Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, (The Sting of the Scorpion, 2014) and in the 5th Marrakech Biennial (Where are we Now?, 2014).
