Oreet Ashery - death in the now

From Up This Way, 11:35 am on 7 January 2018

Oreet Ashery is an Israeli-British artist who works in multiple mediums including film, photography, and performance. Her art often tackles themes of politics, gender, class, social constructs, and the plight of refugees.

In Malmö, Sweden she constructed a fascinating sonic scene called Passing through Metal. Forty knitters tap tapped away on their needles while a sludge metal band joined in with their most contrasting of sounds.

Recently Oreet won the Film London Jarman Award - a prize for practitioners doing experimental work - for her series Revisiting Genesis, which has a woozy tech focused angle on mortality.
