EDEN MITSENMACHER

Born 1987 in the USA; works in London and Tel Aviv.
Combining performance, video and installation to take a critical yet engaging view of social,
political and cultural issues. Embracing the desire to do what you love and occasionally getting
embarrassed by it. Finding a form for vulnerability and blurring the lines between sincerity and
ambiguity. Using pop culture as a frame of reference for social and personal critique but also as
a way to create familiarity and accessibility. Sharing and connecting experiences between an I and a You.

Personal experiences such as love, loneliness and longing are taken at face value but are
immediately turned into points of systematic general inquiry. The banal becomes serious, and
vice versa. Presenting hyper-worlds, built from cultural stereotypes and clichés, then pushed to
the brink of emotional overload. Kitsch is a conscious strategy in my research and practice. My
inspirations often come from the observation in daily life and especially the firsthand
experiences. As one of the many individuals who are experiencing the confusion and struggles
in the current macro environment I am interested in the doubts, curiosity and cognition for the
potential new value orientations and its unpredictable future possibilities.
