Gil Yefman is a conceptual transdisciplinary artist based in Tel Aviv and represented by Shoshana Wayne Gallery, LA. Yefman creates sculptures, videos, performances, installations, and two dimensional works that are process-oriented and are often developed collaboratively. Using soft materials like felt and yarn, Yefman’s practice considers difficult histories while imagining the potential for individual and collective healing. Yefman uses archival materials as points of departure from which the knitting process resembles writing – texts and contexts become textures suggesting alternative interpretations to dogmatic translations.
Yefman holds a BFA from the Bezalel academy for art and design, received the Rapaport Prize for a young artist laureate in 2017 and the 2010 Young Artist Prize by the Israel ministry of culture. Yefman has been in residence at Basis, Frankfurt 2022, ISCP, Brooklyn 2021, Artport, Tel Aviv 2019, ACAC, Japan 2015, Fountainhead, Miami 2014.
