Keren Cytter: Size Matters


05 Jun 201914 Jul 2019

Keren Cytter choreographs an exhibition from drawings, two newly produced animated films and videos in which „Size Matters“. The personal examination of childhood and adolescence is negotiated with expectations at and experiences of growing up and coming of age. The artist Keren Cytter interweaves this examination and these negotiations with a fictitious layer by means of different media. „Size Matters“ physically compels viewers to take a different perspective and to ironically question the relevance of size on different levels of meaning and development.

For Keren Cytter, adolescence is black and white, so represented in the work ‚Experimental Film’. In her early genre video from 2002 dubbed in Hebrew, Cytter still acts as protagonist. However, ‚Des Trous‘ brings the artist, now based in New York, back to Israel in 2018. She sets off on a journey that sparks mixed feelings between melancholia and detachment in familiar relationships.
