Artist Statement

 

Noa Yekutieli is an Israeli American contemporary artist who works mostly in manual paper-cutting technique and creates site specific installations.

In her work she refers to human aspects of complex social situations and raises questions in regards to the place of the memory in the relations to the way political, social and personal narratives are created and evolve.

The foundation of her work is documentation. Using photography and employing  press-images there is a shift from everyday moments to natural or man-made disasters; this shift enables her to explore occurrences of the formation of memory and the construction of narratives in different locations.

This is not to say that disasters in and of themselves are the main question, but rather how representation of catastrophe play as visual facts that sustain and negate human memory. They become an expression of insufferable locus of emptiness, but such that only their acceptance we are able to confront and learn from.

The paper-cutting technique is an irreversible act such as disasters. By the subtraction of material and the creation of absence in the material her work slowly reconstructs itself and exposes the evolving memory.

When positioned opposing to its betrothed glass frame, the relation between the monochromatic image and the glass surface create a constant, yet concurrently change substrate of reflections that merge to ‘one'.  The appearance of the reflection  emphasizes the constant influence the surrounding has on the way we view and form narratives in relations to context.
