Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, 1980

Lives and works in Berlin

Noa Gur’s work intertwines two series of questions: one thread questioning contemporary modes of artistic production, the other thread questioning inequality based on class or ethnicity. She uses and transforms the genre of self-portrait to point towards contemporary aporias of the artist as an economic unit. In an initial phase – with its peak in the nineteenth century – the genius of the artist was established as the central myth in artistic productivity. These iconic images of artists (suffering at the hands of society, an object of exploitation and restriction) are paradoxically entangled in the purest form of the market: the art market, based on nothing but exchange value.
