Gil & Moti

Country:

Israel

Position:

Artist/ Galerie Eric Dupont (Paris), Pedrami Gallery (Antwerp)

(1968 & 1971) They work together exclusively since 1998, are known for their unique social artistic engagement in art and for working strategically in multiple disciplines. They switch effortlessly between classical and contemporary artistic mediums of expression from photography, painting, video, performance, and installation art. Their artistry is on-going exploration of identity, the notion of individuality, and related social norms and forms. Via small-scale social interventions, they address important socio-political issues, such as discrimination, social exclusion and racism. As artists, a gay couple, immigrants based in Rotterdam (NL) and Jewish born (ex)Israelis, they have direct experience of such issues within their own personal lives. Gil & Moti are the winners of MK Award 2015, Dutch prize for visual art. In the recent years they had solo exhibitions among others at: the Nederlands Fotomuseum (Rotterdam), Lentos Kunstmuseum (Linz), Nikolaj Kunsthal (Copenhagen), Stavanger Museum of Fine Arts (Norway), Petach Tikva Museum of Art (Israel) and Tensta Konshall (Sweden).

Gil & Moti residency at Capacete in 2017 is part of the Dutch Mondriaan Foundation, International Artist in Residency Program Grant.
