Sharon Paz

I develop installations using mainly the medium of video and performance, along drawings and objects. I was born and raised in Israel, a country that bears many conflicts, a cultural mix of diverse origins and beliefs. I raise questions about the perception of home, migration, freedom, war and violence.

My inspiration comes from the space around me, I now live in Berlin where the layers of history are still present. I work on the border between the public and the private, I am drawn into images that present conflicted situations and create an absurd situation. My projects are telling a story which is visual, non linear and fragmented.

I use layers of different timelines within one space, creating a new construction of reality. Currently, I work with shadows, black silhouettes and images creating a moving collage. I am interested in visual reconstruction where the viewer has space for imagination and reflection. Dark humor and ambiguity are part of the tools I use - is it real or not.
