Born in South Africa, Ariel Reichman immigrated to Israel in 1991 and has been living in Berlin since 2006. Reichman studied at the Universität der Künste, Berlin, in the class of Hito Steyerl, and the Bezalel Academy of Art, Jerusalem. He works across different media, including photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation. In his practice, he examines subjective memories, daily rituals, and fantasies, considering the ways in which intimacy can help explain the political, and life more generally. His practice is sometimes referred to as conceptual expressionism. Recent solo exhibitions include The View Outside My Basement Window, PSM Berlin 2016 (which will be on during abc); Conservation, Sommer Gallery, S2, Tel Aviv 2015; and Who Distinguishes Between Light and Dark, Waterside Contemporary, London 2014. Recent group exhibitions include False Flags, Pelican Bomb, New Orleans, Louisiana 2016; Welcome to the Jungle, Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art (KW), Berlin 2015; and South South, Goodman Gallery, Cape Town 2015. Forthcoming exhibitions include shows at Pollock Gallery, Meadows School of the Arts, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas; and at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art
