In-between | performance by Adina Bar-On

Galeria Labirynt, 5 Popiełuszki Street
Admission free

In-between performance of Adina Bar-On focuses on the issues of transition phases and transition zones as existential subjects. The artist invites viewers to become active participants of the performance, to abandon their comfortable fixed point of view, and to take part in a kind of existential journey. The motif of the transition, often based on autobiographical themes, appears in the artist’s work since 1973 when, as a third-year student at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design Jerusalem, she began her artistic activity as a performer.

Adrianna Bar-On (1951) – is a pioneer performance artist, considered to be one of the first performance artist in Israel actively involved in political and social actions.  She is well-known for using her own body in evocative style, which is achieved through concentrated voices, movement and face expression. Her performance art refers to conflict of identity and is full of exceedingly emotional situations and states of behaviour that allow her audience to experience the feeling empathy or criticism.
