Miriam Cabessa

Winner of the 2022 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Ministry of Culture.

Cabessa lives and works with her life partner and studio manager Noa, in Tel Aviv and New York.
Born in Casablanca, Morocco in 1966, Cabessa moved to Israel with her family at the age of 3 and was raised in the north of Israel.
Since her breakthrough in the 1990’s, when Cabessa won the Gottesdiener Prize followed by a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum, and presented Israel at the Venice Biennale, she has developed a unique personal painting language that is identified with her and evolves over the years.

In her immersive paintings Cabessa uses her own body as a paint brush, as well as domestic objects such as combs, irons, squeegees, glasses, rags and sponges. Referring to her process as slow motion action painting, Cabessa performs choreographed acts of painting, repetitively applying and subtracting sumptuous layers of paint into intimate compositions.

Cabessa's works have been shown by all the major museums in Israel, are in prominent collections worldwide and are now presented at the Israeli Presidents’ residency. Cabessa has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums in Europe, U.S.A and Israel.
