Reut Avisar’s multidisciplinary practice deals with culturally loaded, symbolic artifacts, objects and folk craft as they appear in tourism culture and its different manifestations. Her installations often integrate found objects, ceramics, fabric and hardware in unconventional ways. Her playful and poetic gestures highlight the artifacts she works with as performative means, serving to perpetuate culture and allow for its survival in a utopian form.

Reut Avisar was born in 1985 at Ramat Gan, Israel. Reut earned her BFA in 2011 from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem and her MFA in 2013 from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
