Oded Hirsch

  • Oded Hirsch produces video, installation, and photography that explore the phenomena of collective experience and participatory spectacle in present day Israel. Born and raised in Kibbutz Afikim, Israel, Hirsch examines how group structures function as a point of departure for deeper considerations of circumstance, choice, and communal action. Often removed from logic and reason, his videos show conflict and resolution as contemporaneous and co-essential phenomenon. While his works occasionally employ absurd tropes to disorienting effect, his narratives focus on situations that invite collective response, shared experience, and greater consciousness of the world around us. Recent solo shows include: The Mad Lift, Liverpool Biennial, UK; Nothing New, Thierry Goldberg Gallery, New York, NY; The Chelsea Project, EDS Galeria, Mexico City; and Sleep Tight Ramat-Gan Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel. Recent group exhibitions include: MASS MoCA, MA; Queens Museum of Art, New York; The Jewish Museum, Munich, Germany; Black and White Gallery, New York; Lesley Heller Workspace, New York; Lora Reynolds Gallery, Austin, TX; and the Soap Factory, Minneapolis.
