Alona Rodeh was born in Nahariya, Israel in 1979, and currently works in Tel Aviv. After receiving her BFA in 2003 and her MFA in 2009 at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Rodeh participated in numerous exhibitions in Israel and abroad: in galleries like Rosenfeld Gallery and Tavi Dresdner Gallery as well as in Biennials and special commissioned works like the Art TLV artist-curator project, the Herzliya Biennial, the Petach Tikva Museum of Art and the Ashdod Museum of Art.
Deriving from sculpture, much of Rodeh’s works mix several mediums and enjoys cross-disciplinary practice. This can vary from employing performative qualities of site specific interventions to full participatory works, in what can be described as ‘performance without performers’.
Rodeh’s works are temporary stagings of biblical and/or ancient symbols within a contemporary context, linking between the ancient and it’s up-to-date metamorphosis, in an attempt to create a gap which gives one the choice of discovering the possibilities folded in the space between what physically exists and it’s potential.
