Pasternak, Gil (2012) Yael Bartana. In: Yael Bartana, 6 June 2012, Leeds Art Gallery. (Unpublished)

This event extended the activities of the Insight Palestina conference (see 7 June 2012 above), co-organised by Dr Gil Pasternak (University of Huddersfield) and Lior Libman (Hebrew University of Jerusalem). Pavilion presented a screening of short films by Yael Bartana. In her photographs, films and installations Bartana critically investigates her native country’s struggle for identity. Her early work documents collective rituals introducing alienation effects such as slow-motion and sound. In her recent work the artist stages situations and introduces fictive moments into real existing narratives. The programme of films was introduced by Gill Park (Director of Pavilion), Gil Pasternak and Lior Libman. It included Bartana’s Kings of the Hill (2003), Wild Seeds (2005), Trembling Time (2001), Low Relief II (2004) and When Adar Enters (2004).
