Assaf Hinden

b.1988 / based in Tel Aviv- Jaffa
 

The artist's photography, video and installation practice explores the relationship between culture, narrative and memory. It examines the past through the exposure of what was left from it, in the acts of finding, extracting and documenting.

The concept of preservation is a key element throughout the artistic research, hence the resulting works are acts of preservation in themselves. They do not refer directly to the original objects, but rather reinterpreting them through a dynamic process that involves historical and current elements, veering from the personal to the public.
