Profile
Artist

Efrat Natan (Kibbutz Kfar Ruppin, 1947) now lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel. After graduating from Avni Institute, she worked with Raffi Lavie (1968-71), curator at the Young Wing of the Israel Museum. In the early 1970s, she was among the first artists in Israel to work the conceptual art and the body art with an international language, as a result of a large knowledge of Western art. Since then, her work speaks out for itself, as a result of an assembling of social, political and religious icons, where Natan’s cultural heritage is always presented. A symbolic work that connects with her private memories linked with a childhood in a kibbutz, a symbolism that goes from the Judaic belief until the territory issues in Israel. Natan has shown his work at museums and institutions worldwide.
