Yishay Garbasz is an interdisciplinary artist based in Berlin. In her work she explores the culturally specific inheritance of traumatic memories. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in international galleries and museums.


In Severed Connections: Do what I say or they will kill you Yishay Garbasz uses the traditional artistic language of landscape to understand contemporary borders. Using a large format view camera as a way to help her see what is actually there. Working in Korea, Israel and Palestine, as well as Belfast. In each of these locations, barriers exist as single dimensional lines of defence (the opposite of deep defence) for separate warring groups living in close proximity. Through photography, video, and sculpture, the artist conceptualizes the architecture of separation with an anthropologist’s sensibility. Garbasz challenges the assumption that good fences make good neighbours, maintaining that severing connections between groups creates a culture of fear that allows governments to control their own people by creating a fear of the ‘other’.
