An Evening of Art and Psychology with Einat Amir

Monday, May 16th 
7:00 - 9:00 PM 

The Screening Room presents
an evening of art and psychology with artist Einat Amir
in collaboration with
TRIAD and the Fountainhead Residency 

Tel Aviv based artist Einat Amir will be discussing her artistic practice, inspired by psychological experiments. She will be showing drawings from her new series "Face of The Earth" (2016) along with some of her latest video works, including  'I Will Be Your Guide for This Session' (2013) that follows two groups of participants as they embark on a journey examining personal narratives through psychoanalytic and physical exercises. Through the direction of two professional guides, the boundaries between the performative and the authentic are challenged. The filmed sessions were not scripted or rehearsed, appropriating methods used by Reality TV into this layered and complex artwork. I Will Be Your Guide for This Session is part of a larger project, Our Best Intentions, which is both video installation and live performance and was previously shown at the performance biennial Performa13.
