About the event

Ye’ela Wilschanski is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York, originally from Jerusalem, Israel.

Wilschanski’s performance practice unravels through the artist’s body as she assembles and dismantles pseudo-sculptural costumes which alternately constrict her motion and give new, iconographic meaning to her gestures. Drawing on Jewish storytelling traditions and Western performance, Wilschanski’s wearable sculptures expose the ideological weight of clothing and the way that communal beliefs shape the body’s movement. An article of clothing may be worn by one person, but the codes that it reinforces suggest the presence of a chorus.

Wilschanski has performed and exhibited at The Border Project Space (NYC, 2022) Das Schaufenste (Seattle, 2021) mhPROJECTnyc (NYC, 2021), A.I.R Gallery (NYC, 2020), Arts on Site (NYC, 2019), Movement Research at the Judson Church (NYC ,2019),  Spring/Break Art Fair (NYC, 2019), A4 Art Museum (Chengdu, China, 2018), Galeria Arsenal (Poznan, Poland, 2018). Wilschanski has participated in residencies at MASH Dance House (Jerusalem, Israel, 2015), Lake Studio Dance Residency (Berlin, Germany, 2014),  Euginiusz Geppert Academy (Wroclaw, Poland, 2014). She received an MFA from Hunter College (NYC, 2019) and a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (Israel, 2014).
