Biography of the artist:
Elana Katz is an American artist currently based in Berlin, Germany. Working often from a historical basis, Katz’s work confronts cultural conventions, critically examines the complexity that lies within contradictions, and thus aims to create an experience of unlearning the assumed. Her recent grants have included the DAAD Graduate Studies Grant (2010) and the Franklin Furnace Fund (2011). She participated as a re-performer at Marina Abramovic’s retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (2010), and has recently
exhibited/ performed at Location One, New York (2011), Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium (2011), Freies Museum Berlin (2012), Diehl CUBE Berlin (2013), and P.P.O.W. Gallery, New York (2013).
