About the Artist: Noa Yekutieli
Noa is the 2014 recpeitient of the Young International Artist Award presented by the Tel Aviv Arts Council & Outset Israel.
Noa Yekutieli was born in California in 1989 and immigrated to Israel as a young child.
For the past few years Noa Yekutieli has been conducting an autodidactic research of a paper-cutting technique focusing on 2-dimensional pieces and site-specific installations.
Her works are characterized by an aesthetic dissonance that initially begins with a stage of contemplation that produces a momentary illusionof peacefulness. When examined closer, her pieces depict a continuing disclosure that focuses on content tangled with the concept of changing time, and thus, the volatile nature of memory which is inherent to the passage of time.
The archive of images stored is often expressed through natural disasters in her work, erasing a physical reality leaving the increasingly dim memories, making room for a new reality that is being built.
Yekutieli’s work aims to take the viewer through a reflective personal memory quest, raising questions regarding the differences between those memories and how they translate into how we perceive our reality and forms out consciousness.
Cut paper allows Yekutieli to engage in the process of deconstruction and reconstruction of these ideas, reflecting on specific and precise moments, questioning the authenticity of the translucent areas between the past, the present and the future.
In her work, the concepts and technique are one of the same. The cut paper functions as remnants and memories of the original and complete piece of paper. The incisions in the paper cause what remains to be present and create a sense of longing for what is no longer here.
