Selected Works

Aline Alagem (b. 1981, Israel)
Lives and works in Berlin and Tel Aviv

At the core of Aline Alagem’s large-scale figurative installations stands the painted image. This painted image meets the painted object and the moving image, and while it is “Hyper defined”- both technically and conceptually, it is being fragmented, duplicated, and manipulated, tested for its validity, appeal and cultural charge.

In this sensually dens arena, borders are transforming and fading, between mediums as between high and low, wrong and right, real and imagined. They continually unfold a world of visual scripted fantasies, where erotica, dream, fetish and unanimity suggest a deeper swirl: gender and identity are a core issue in Alagem’s work.

Alagem (born Israel 1981) completed her BFA at the Bezalel Academy, Jerusalem (2005), during which was awarded an exchange student grant at the SVA NY. She is a recipient of the Pais Fine Arts Grant and the Yehoshua Rabinovich art fund and has participated in the Cite residency program, Paris (2011).

After completing her studio residency program at the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (2016), and exhibiting two solo shows, Skin, Tone, (Kunstlerhaus Bethanien gallery) and Director’s Cut (C1 gallery) in Berlin along with several group shows,  Alagem exhibited her recent multi-mediumal one-woman show titled Night and Dawn (layla and Shahar) at the Artists Studios’ Gallery, Tel aviv (2017), and launched her artist book under the same name. Alagem is currently dividing her time between her studio in Tel Aviv and another in Berlin.

Alagem’s work was exhibited in solo and group shows in Israel, Europe and Us, and collected by leading public and privet collections in worldwide.
