11 May 201924 Nov 2019

Title: “Field Hospital X”
Commissioner: Michael Gov, Arad Turgeman
Curator: Avi Lubin
Artist: Aya Ben Ron

Multidisciplinary Israeli artist Aya Ben Ron presents “Field Hospital X” (FHX), an international and itinerating institution, founded by her and produced by Miki Gov, which has its first installment at the Venice Art Biennale 2019.
A sort of sanitary structure is re-created inside the Pavilion to investigate the role of art in dealing with abuses and injustices of contemporary society. In this protected environment, the artist projects “No Body”, a video work which tells of her personal experience of abuses with the aim to shed a light also on other silent voices and stories of suffered mistreatments.
