| First monograph on the work of the artist from Israel
In her multifaceted artistic practice, which ranges from sculpture, video, drawing, and installation, Aya Ben Ron (*1967 in Haifa, Israel) explores the perception of death and morality, the morbid body, as well as the unconscious collective memory of pain in its sociohistorical dimension. Over the years she has established a rich body of works that has been widely recognized and included in numerous art exhibitions.
This first monograph features works selected from all of the series Aya Ben Ron has produced in the last ten years. With essays by renowned art, philosophy, and medical professionals, such as Michal Ben-Naftali, Suhail Malik, and Yechiel Michael Barilan, this publication opens a new perspective on the artist’s stunning oeuvre—including her most recent works for the Berliner Medizinhistorisches Museum der Charité.
Exhibition schedule: Medizinhistorisches Museum der Charité, Berlin, April 29–September 9, 2012 | AANDO FINE ART, Berlin, April 28–June 22, 2012
