Atalya Laufer is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work typically encompass collaging, drawing and found objects. Interested in inter-generational discussions, her works are often based on historical material and anecdotes she takes out of their original contexts. She tends to immerse herself in the practice of other artists to produce collaborations that transcend time, space and place. Laufer work is neither biographical nor entirely fictitious, they act as playful space for her perusing and research.
Laufer’s work is held in the public collections of the Jewish Museum Berlin (Germany), The university of Arts (U.K), Central Saint Martins Museum & Study Collection (U.K), and the HRH Prince of Wales (UK).
Support: Atalya Laufer’s residency is made possible with support from The Neighborhood: An Urban Center for Jewish Life and The Peleh Fund.
