Nirit is an Israeli born artist and designer based in London. Her work explores the interconnection between society, economy and ecology.
Nirit seeks ways to provoke thoughts about the meaning of care and value. Using participatory installations, videos and workshops, she creates experiences for humans to interact with their biosphere. Her practice uses other-than-human entities as a reflective tool for society and geopolitics.
Recent and ongoing projects include 'Mutuality in the Biosphere' workshops at RCA2021, and at The Potting Shed by Collective Matter (Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer, Slough) and Webs in collaboration with Kings College Synthetic Anatomy Department.
Nirit previously graduated from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design Jerusalem. She was awarded the Design Award from the Israel Ministry of Culture. Nirit gained experience as an editorial and book designer and worked with cultural institutions such as the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, Israel Museum Jerusalem, Peres Center for Peace.
