Pavel Wolberg

Born in Leningrad (St. Petersburg, Russia) USSR in 1966, lives and works in Tel Aviv.
As an immigrant from the Soviet Union, Wolberg's work revolves around identity, the illusion of a unified identity and the dismantling fragmentation of identity. He uses the camera to expose the fluctuating moments which capture identity’s fictional, misleading and fantastical incarnations set against daily life. He seeks to capture the tricky nature of what we call identity in the eye of an immigrant – and the way we live is always in between identities and borders. His work is about identity, memory and borders, exposing historical self and contemporary self, in order to see how identity from the past connects to the present and becomes memory. The personal and the non-personal are united by photography in his work.
His work was exhibited in museums and institutions such as Gemak Museum The Hague, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Haifa Museum of Art, Ashdod Art Museum ,The Museum of Photography and Film Rochester, New York, The 52 Venice Biennale, The Martin-Gropius-Bau KIM-Kunst Im Tunnel Düsseldorf, La Collection Antoine de Galbert La Maison Rouge Paris, Jewish Museum Amsterdam, Passage de Retz Paris, Krefeld Museum, Exit Art New York, Mystetskyi Arsenal National Art and Culture Museum Kiev, OCAT Shanghai, ArtLab, Lausanne, Art.
