About Yael Kanarek

Yael Kanarek’s multimedia works explore the relationship between language and emotion, between movement and identity. Her installations often feature words in delicate, lace-like strings of moulded rubber letters in multiple languages, including Hebrew, Arabic, and English. Kanarek is best known for her ongoing project begun in 1994, World of Awe, a virtual travelogue synthesizing photography, sculpture, and text. The fictional traveler is gender-less and nation-less, wandering in an alternate reality called Sunset/Sunrise and leaving behind love letters.

American, b. 1967, Israel, based in New York, New York
