Bringing together a selection of some of Yael Bartana’s early video works, this collection of films offers a rare chance to see the acclaimed artist’s voice and perspective develop over the course of the first decade of her career. Often referencing the rituals, symbols, and ceremonies of Israeli culture, her films present a visual dialogue on the human condition, underlining society’s potential to resist a politically driven collective identity. Featuring Profile (2000), Trembling Time (2001), Kings of the Hill (2003), When Adar Enters (2003), Sirens’ Song (2005), Wild Seeds (2005), A Declaration (2006), Summer Camp / Awodah (2007) and The Recorder Player From Sheikh Jarrah (2010).
