I’m an Israeli independent Artist, dedicated to research, learning and hands-on engagement with Life, Science, and Art.
Using various techniques, media and artistic strategies, my focus is on Living/Life.
I use Life as a raw material, and this allows a sensation of immediacy and intensity.
I specialise in BioArt (BioArt is art that literally works in the continuum of biomaterials, from DNA, proteins, and cells to full organisms. BioArt manipulates, modifies or creates life and living processes), which aims to enrich our
understanding of what it means
to be Alive.
Max. Born in Siberia, lives and works in Tel Aviv-Yafo.
Her practice spans multiple art forms. Max’s creations tend towards the extreme. Her use of unusual materials such as blood or jellyfish carcasses reveal her ideological and physical manifestations of pain and trauma.
The process of self-inquiry and self-reflectiveness are repeated obsessively in her art create the foundations for brutal and exposed works, supports the narrative she wishes to convey.
Max’s creations are liminal. They blur the lines between human and animal, life and death, flesh and machine. Animals become human and human bodies become amorphous and modular.
Art of verge. Life on the edge. Existence on the brink.
Max – Artist Loner.
She is not a member of any organization.
Not a member of any communities.
Max did not finish school.
She never studied in any institution.
Max is an autodidact.
Everything that she knows – she learned by herself.
My opinion – take it or leave it.
