In her videos, films and installations, Keren Cytter (b. Tel Aviv, 1977, lives and works in New York) depicts how media, and especially social media clichés, permeate our daily lives. Using a cyclical, non-linear logic, her approach subverts linguistic conventions and traditional mechanisms of interpretation. With an explicit focus on amateur videos, her montages of impressions, memories and fantasies give rise to poetic and self-referential compositions with a penchant for intense and artificial scenes. At Museion, Keren Cytter will present an exhibition on the theme of time and the different stages in life. Previous works will be displayed alongside new ones and there will be a number of drawings – some exhibited on the museum’s glass facades – as well as a new animated film that highlights her work as an author of children’s books.
