Keren Cytter

Keren Cytter

b. 1977, Tel Aviv, Israel


Born 1977 in Tel Aviv, Israel, Keren Cytter studied visual art at Avni Institute for Art, Tel Aviv, and later moved to Amsterdam on a scholarship from De Ateliers. Today, she lives and works in New York. 

Keren Cytter creates films, performances, drawings and photographs on topics of social alienation, language representation, and the function of individuals in predetermines cultural systems through experimental modes of storytelling and human perception. Mostly characterized by a non-linear, cyclical logic Cytter’s films consist of multiple layers of images; conversation; monologue, and narration systematically composed to undermine linguistic conventions and traditional interpretation schemata. Recalling amateur home movies and video diaries, these montages of impressions, memories, and imaginings are poetic and self-referential in composition. The artist creates intensified scenes drawn from everyday life in which the overwhelmingly artificial nature of the situations portrayed is echoed by the very means of their production.
