LONG ISLAND CITY.- P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center presents the work of Yael Bartana, whose work investigates society and politics. Over the last several years, she has become known for her complex visualizations in the forms of photography, film, video, and sound works and installations. Whereas largely known in Europe, her work has not been as present in the U.S. until now. On view in the First Floor Drawing and Painting Galleries through January 26, 2009, this is Bartana’s first solo exhibition at a New York institution.

The exhibition is comprised of five works, including Trembling Time (2001), Kings of the Hill (2003), Low Relief II (2004), Wild Seeds (2005), and Summer Camp (2007), which provide an introduction to the past seven years of Bartana’s artistic practice. Her work creates a revealing ambivalence between playfulness and serious topics, time looped and halted, material from documentation and reenactments.

Yael Bartana (b. 1970, Afula, Israel) lives and works in Amsterdam and Tel Aviv. She has had numerous solo exhibitions including: Foksal Gallery, Warsaw, Poland (2008); Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel (2008); The Power Plant, Toronto, Canada (2007); KunstvereinHamburg, Hamburg, Germany (2006); Museum St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland (2005); Sommer Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel (2004); MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA (2004).

She has also been included in may group exhibitions including: Henry Moore Institute, Leeds, United Kingdom (2008); Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon, Spain (2008); Documenta 12, Kassel, Germany (2007); Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, USA (2007); Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2007); 27th Bienal de So Paulo, Brasil (2007); Tpies Foundation, Barcelona, Spain (2006); 9th Istanbul Biennial, Istanbul, Turkey (2005).
