Michal Rovner, born in Israel (1957), works in Israel and New York. Rovner’s work in video, sculpture, drawing and installation, established a unique language in art.  Rovner’s explorations shift constantly between the poetic and the political, raising issues of identity, place, and the human condition. Rovner’s multimedia practice received a mid-career retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 2002.  At the 50th Venice Biennale (2003), Rovner represented Israel with the acclaimed exhibition Against Order? Against Disorder? The artist’s 2011 three-part exhibition Histoires at the Louvre presented stone and video works inside the museum and installed the artist’s monumental stone sculptures, Makom II and Makom IV, in the Cour Napoléon, adjacent to I.M. Pei’s iconic pyramid. Living Landscape (2005) is the opening chapter of the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum in Jerusalem.  Rovner’s work pays tribute to Jewish life before the Holocaust. Rovner’s Traces of Life (2013), at the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, is a room dedicated to the million and a half children murdered in the Shoah. In 2015, Passages, Rovner’s large scale permanent video-fresco (37 x 5 meters) was installed at the Piazza Municipio metro station in Naples. The site-specific 16-meter-long video work, Transitions was installed at Crossrail Place in London in 2019. Rovner’s artworks have been exhibited in over seventy solo exhibitions at the world’s most prestigious venues.  Her works are included in collections of the world’s leading museums, among them: The British Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, the Guggenheim, and the Israel Museum.
