Lihi Turjeman

Born in 1985 in Israel, she lives and works in Tel-Aviv, she is known for her monochromatic large scale painting installations.

Her unique works revolve around space in all its forms and multiple meanings, embracing the duality of a comprehensive approach alongside a microscopic attention to details. Turjeman’s practice can be categorised as action painting, in which she performs physical actions on the surface of the painting while considering space limitations that can be both physical and metaphorical. Through smearing, rubbing, peeling, staining and gluing, she hardens the canvas fabric, emphasising its folds and textures. In her paintings, the canvas may function as a wall, a territory or a map yet to be drawn. As formats, heights and distances, are elements that strictly affect her creation process, she often creates site specific pieces.

Turjeman participated in various residencies including the ‘Cité international des Arts’ in Paris; Artport in Tel-Aviv and Fondazione Spinola Banna in Italy. She received the Israeli Ministry of Culture Award for Young Artists.
