Ann Oren is an artist and a filmmaker. Her films and video installations feature characters existing in the liminal space between performers and audience. By breaking down distinctions between plant, animal and human, she asks what it is to be human in our ecosystems, while being immersed in digital culture. Questions about intimacy, identity and the lack thereof keep emerging through various audio-visual approaches. In her process she explores gender, fictosexuality, animality, interspecies and other forms of hybridizations. Through an initially narrative language, she leads the spectator emotionally into a space that engages critical thinking.
Her work’s institutional presentations include The Moscow Biennial for Young Art, The Hammer museum, The Tel-Aviv Museum, Anthology Film Archives, Apexart, Künstlerhaus Bethanien and Kindl - Zentrum für zeitgenössische Kunst. Festival screenings include Rotterdam, BFI London, Slamdance, Oberhausen Kurzfilmtage, Dok Leipzig, Locarno and Ann Arbor.
Born in Tel-Aviv (1979), Ann studied Film (BA) and Fine Arts (MA) at The School of Visual Arts, NY. She lives/works in Berlin.
