Still Images in this catalogue by:
Miri Segal’s artistic language, crystallized over the past twenty years, employs a variety of media – including video, light and text, treated objects involving hardware and software, photographic and computer-manipulated imagery. Through the involvement of sensory and physical manipulations, optical illusions, word games and enticing technological experiences, Segal's works often invade the viewer's space in unexpected ways. Floating images, Technological Ghosts, shadows without body and the Purgatorium - serve to subtly speculate on our capacity to apprehend concrete reality. Segal’s works reflect her interest in philosophical questions regarding Existence, Ethics of Technology, and Economic-Political Regimes.
Aya Lurie, PhD., is the Director and Chief Curator of The Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art. Lurie is also a Lecturer at the Academic College of Tel Aviv-Jaffa in the curatorial program of Israeli Art studies, and serves in several judicial prize committees (Art, Museum & Curatorship) in varied professional leading venues. She was the former Chief curator of the Shpilman institute for Photography.
