6 - For The Love of Experimentation
Keren Cytter uses mixed media in her art and embraces a method of experimentation that reflects the processes of science and engineering. She employs this approach to build artworks that feature everything from dance to experimental video work, writing, opera, photography, music and even drawing.
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, and having lived in Berlin and New York, Cytter founded the dance group Dance International Europe Now (D.I.E. Now). She has become known for her video works which explore the influence of the culture of media on interpersonal relationships.
Supported by the AVL Cultural Foundation and curated by Sandro Droschl, For The Love Of Experimentation was an exhibition of Cytter’s work at the Künstlerhaus in Graz, Austria. The mixed media piece drew inspiration from filmmakers including John Cassavetes and the controversial Pier Paolo Passolini, and borrowed from formats such as news media, film noir and music.
