Lee Yanor Studied photography at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem and at Paris 8 University where she received a Master of Fine Arts in 1993. She has also studied Art and photography at the Pratt Institute in New York.
Yanor has participated in several international exhibits such as Centre Georges Pompidou In Paris, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing and at the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
Lee Yanor`s Video Installations, emulsions and holograms– photos made with experimental techniques provoke a deep humanistic stance as well as an advanced sense of movement, time, rhythm, pulse, and the human body – all of which can be found in dance. Lee works creatively in the borderland where art, dance, photography, music, sound, set design and technology interweave. Lee`s work makes a dialogue with topics such as identity, exile, dreams, and memories.
