Lee Yanor

Visual Artist, filmmaker and photographer.
Born in 1963 in Haifa. Studied Art and Photography at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem, at the Pratt Institute in New York, and at Paris 8 University where she received a Master of Fine Arts in 1993. 
Lee Yanor works creatively interweaving plastic arts, photography, dance, music, sound and technology. Movement is an element that has a philosophical and physical presence within her. Through her video-installations, emulsions and holograms, she brings out the materiality of the image and imprints countless layers of reflexive and collective memories  in time and space.
Yanor is the winner of the Coreografo Elettronic Award for Video-Dance, Madre Museum for Art, Naples (2017) and the Constantiner Photography Award, Tel Aviv Museum of Art (2002). Her film Coffee with Pina, which describes her exclusive meeting with the choreographer Pina Bausch, has been screened in prestigious film festivals and museums worldwide, such as the Jerusalem Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Gropius-Bau Museum in Berlin, BAM in Brooklyn, Hammer Museum in California, Tel Aviv Art Museum, and the Pompidou Center in Paris. 
Yanor had solo exhibitions at the Ehad Haam 9 Galley, Tel Aviv (2023); Tony Cragg FoundationWuppertal (2019); Zemack Gallery for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv (2018); LOOP Barcelona, Spain (2016); The Jewish Theater, Stockholm (2010); The Heder Gallery, Tel Aviv (2008); The Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taiwan (2007); The Ramat Gan Museum for Israeli Art, Ramat Gan (2000); Centre Pompidou, Paris (1994), and more.
