Biography

Michal Rovner is an Israeli video, photo and cinema artist born in Tel Aviv, Israel. Rovner studied at Tel Aviv University and at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem receiving a BFA in photography in 1985. Rovner’s intentionally ambiguous work touches on the processes of historical documentation, archaeology, science, and choreography to activate states of probing. Working with the human figure, Rovner’s conceptual approach across media speaks to human boundaries and dynamics of time. Rover has exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions including a mid-career retrospective at the Whitney Museum of Art, the Israeli Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, the Jeu de Paume, and the Louvre.
