Keren Oxman's work operates as a form of anthropological research in which the artist functions as a collector scavenging and piecing together distant documents alongside cultural relics and contemporary artifacts all taken from the infinite pool of existing junk space. These aggregations, that draw from the aesthetics of traditional masks and artifacts, create a complex mosaic of mash-up and establish the visual presence of the 'creaturely'. A suggestive race that ranges from the foreign to the familiar and relates to a cross-cultural, post-colonial world. Oxman received her MA from the Royal College of Art in London and her BA from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. She currently lives and works in Caesarea.
