About the speaker

Moran Kliger is an artist who lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Her body of work is based mostly on figurative, narrative drawings. It consists of series created in different techniques, usually sprawled over a wide working area and mainly composed of thin lines that acquire an emotional charge due to their seemingly graphic, illustrative, neutral, and pathos-free appearance.

Her works engage with the tension between the domesticated element and the wild and dark element within the human psyche. Through the use of motifs associated with raw nature and fantastical elements, she tries to explore the relationship between these two contradictory components in the definition of the human. The works are created in manual, painstaking, and sometimes even regimented labor that gives shape to issues that touch on urges and desires.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in solo and group exhibitions including the Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2018), Basis Gallery, Herzeliya (2018), OpenArt Biennale, Örebro, Sweden (2017), and more. Her pieces can be found in private collections including Art Partners Collection, managed by Gil Brandes, the Dubi Shiff Art Collection, and others.

She holds a BA with honors from the Faculty of Design and Art, Shenkar (2007) and a Masters in Fine Arts from Hamidrasha, Beit Berl College (2013).
