Oren Pinhassi

Oren Pinhassi’s installations examine the relationship between the human figure, nature, and the built environment by conjuring evocative and erotic sites that intersect public and private exchange. His sculptures are frequently a combination of the superfluous and the ergonomic, erring towards the utopian. They mimic familiar objects, seeking to render visible the ways that humankind builds the world in its own image.Oren Pinhassi (b.Tel-aviv, 1985) received an MFA from Yale in 2014 and Bachelor of Education in Fine Arts from Beit-Berl College, Hamidrasha School of Art in 2011.
