Bio

Liora Kaplan constructs sculptural forms compiled of found objects, laden with local significance, such as Israeli ceramics, merged with aesthetics that pertain to traditional craft. Her three-dimensional objects are imbued with symbolic codes and meanings, and her works explore the subjective interpretations transmitted through such codes. Kaplan employs a variety of materials including wood, leather, metal, and glass, which together generate a new set of characteristics and a cohesive array of work. Through her objects and materials of choice, her works give rise to a new cultural narrative that brings to the forefront the artist’s inclination toward creating connections that lead to dialogue rather than conflict.

Kaplan will have a solo exhibition with the Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv in 2021. Additional solo exhibitions include Rozin Center (Tel Aviv, 2017) and Ferrate Gallery, (Tel Aviv, 2013). Group exhibitions include Ramat Hasharon Gallery (2020), Beit Ha’ir (Tel Aviv, 2020), CCA Tel Aviv (2020), Braverman Gallery (2019), Royal Beach (Tel Aviv, 2018), Red House Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2017), Hanut Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2017) ,Beit Mairov Municipal Arts Center (Holon, 2013 and 2016),The Farm Gallery (Holon, 2015), Port Gallery (Jaffa, 2015), Tiroche Auction House (Herzliya, 2014), Rozenfeld Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2014) Lilienblum 23 (Tel Aviv, 2014), Salon 96 (Tel Aviv, 2014), SCOPE Art Fair (Miami, 2013) See.me Gallery (New York, 2013), Vitrina (Tel Aviv, 2013), Florentine 45 Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2012), @Gallery (New York, 2011), ST-ART Residence (Jaffa, 2011), Kishon Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2011), NARS Gallery (New York, 2010), (Mika Art Gallery, Tel Aviv, 2010), LOFT Barcelona (Barcelona, 2010), Russian Academy of Arts (Moscow, 2010), Art Whino Gallery (Washington D.C., 2008), among others.
