Guy Ben-Ner Bio

About The Artist

Guy Ben-Ner's videos, while playful on the surface, are brimming with references to sophisticated literary and cinematic sources such as the humanist films of François Truffaut, the physical comedies of Buster Keaton, and Herman Melville's Moby Dick. Many of Ben-Ner's films examine the idea of domestic life, as he uses himself, his children, and their routines as material to construct narratives that examine his ambivalence, anxiety, and delight at balancing work and family.

In 2005, Ben-Ner represented Israel at the Venice Biennale and was selected by New York Magazine as an "artist on the verge of a breakthrough" after being featured at the Greater New York exhibition at MoMA P.S. 1. In 2007, Ben-Ner was awarded a prestigious DAAD fellowship. He is currently a Lecturer at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.
