Ms. Irit Tamari

Teaching Fellow

Architecture Track

MFA Graduate from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design and BED Graduate with honor from the Midrasha School of Art, Beit Berl. Tamari addresses photography as a paradox between the depth of the documented subject and the flatness of the printed material. She cuts her photographs and constructs new worlds in two or three dimensions; Tamari's work is subtle and distinctive. The point of departure for all her work is photography – but her approach to it comes from a deconstructive sculptural perspective and the end result is always an intersection of the two mediums, expanding and challenging any categorical boundaries between them. The photograph serves for Tamari as a material rather than a fixed image, to which she applies cutout techniques which deform and rework the representational into a new abstract composition which spreads in space as an uncanny, entrancing installation. Tamari has developed a signature artistic language throughout her years of practice, transcending the possibilities of the photographic image to a new, unique form. Tamari has exhibited her works in venues in Israel and abroad, among them at NADA New York, ART SOUTERRAIN Montreal, REDTORY Guangzhou, CIGE Beijing, Herzliya Museum, Ashdod museum, Mishkan Museum of Art, Kibbutz Ein Harod, Sommer Gallery, Chelouche Gallery and more.
