Adi Oz-Ari is Tel Aviv-based artist working mainly in photography and video. In her works, she engages with the photographic process in which an object becomes an image, representing either one moment or a duration in time. Constantly experimenting with photographic materials and procedures, Oz-Ari's recent work focuses on the body and its malfunctions, illness, and pain.
Oz-Ari's works have been displayed in various venues worldwide. Solo shows include "Epidermis," at the Photography Lab gallery in Tel Aviv, "Out of Space," at The Lobby gallery in Tel Aviv (with Raafat Hatab), and "My Madonna" at The Artist's House in Tel Aviv. Her work has been featured in group exhibitions at various institutions, including Janco-Dada Museum in Ein Hod, The 5th Intentional Photography Festival in Tel Aviv, Traverse Video Festival in Toulouse, Bialik House Museum in Tel Aviv, Indie Gallery and Florentin 45 Contemporary Art Space in Tel Aviv, the Artists' Residence gallery in Herzliya, The Artists' Workshops Gallery in Jerusalem, and "Empire II," a 2017Venice Biennale satellite show.
Oz-Ari is a graduate of the MFA program at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem and holds a BFA from Hamidrasha College of Art, Beir Berl, and the Tel Aviv University.
