About the Artist

Meir Tati works in diverse mediums of performance, video and installation, and his works often deal with charged global and local issues. He uses an interdisciplinary language, inspired by an eclectic visual culture: cinema, computer-world, pop culture, comic books and the virtual sphere. His current practice also includes elements of research, as my latest projects reflect on historic events and the way history is “written” by mixing reality with fiction, documentary with performance and more. Thus, ultimately resulting in polyphonic installations that do-not necessarily tell a specific story, but rather create a cacophonic mixture of facts and imagination, encouraging the viewers to rethink certain events and collective traumas (see for example “Sharashka” project). Through his works he aims to intervene in ‘real life,’ outside the studio space, and therefore he also works on socially engaged projects. Meir perceives his role as an artist as that of a ‘worker’; one who intervenes in a certain environment where the knowledge already exists, aiming to expose and translate this knowledge into an artistic activity. Consequently, his works are also based on unmediated encounters and surprising collaborations.
