"The First Year", is a video installation by Yaara Zach in which the artist crosses over for the first time from sculpture to performative act. Using wearable objects, Zach carries out a performative ritualistic act rooted in grief and loss, while pointing to the magical possibility to return an essence of vitality to the dying body. A recurring act of breathing-resuscitating serves her as a metronome for restoring the human pulse, while also regulating the artwork’s rhythm. 

"The First Year" will be shown for the first time in "Kefitzat Haderech", curated by Shlomit Breuer and Shir Meller Yamaguchi at the Wilfrid Israel Museum at Kibbutz Hazorea.  The work was produced as part of and in support of the incubator of Mifal Hapais in collaboration with the Wilfrid Israel Museum. It was also generously supported by Asylum Arts. The Wilfrid Israel Museum will host the opening on March 31 at noon.

Art-making functions, in part, as a way to lend form to material. This means that artists are especially attuned to the dramatic changes that are reshaping our material environment. From extreme changes to our climate system, through the utter confluence between the natural and the artificial, humanity’s imprint on the planet is so entrenched that scientists now speak of a new geological era –the era of man, or the Anthropocene. The nine artists included in this exhibition respond to the transformations in our environment in various manifestations, not as themes in their work but as source material.

Yaara Zach is a multidisciplinary artist who shifts between the local space and the personal-private sphere. In her works, readymade materials are transformed, deconstructed and reconstructed, bringing private memory and collective memory together. The result is a fantastic world with an identity and a system of signs all its own, which responds to climatic and socio-political changes. Zach lures the viewers into her work, forging an interactive relationship with them which resembles a dance choreography taking place between the two parties in the space. Since the outset of her career, Zach has developed a unique personal language, which draws inspiration from the human figure, delving into human consciousness and perception, and introducing questions challenging our society and culture.

Yaara Zach (b. 1984) lives and works in Tel Aviv.

Zach holds a BFA and an MFA from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. She is a Lecturer in the Department of Multidisciplinary Art, at Shenkar College.

Her works have been featured in exhibitions at galleries and museums in Israel and around the world including The Israel Museum, Jerusalem; Tel Aviv Museum of Art; the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art; the Berardo Collection Museum, Lisbon; The artists' house in Brno; Givon Gallery, Tel Aviv; Artport Gallery, Tel Aviv; Ashdod Museum of Art; Haifa Museum of Art; and Petach Tikva Museum of Art.

Yaara Zach has won numerous awards, including a Merit Prize from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design; the Rabinovich Foundation Prize for the Arts, Tel Aviv; and grants from the Israel Lottery Council for Culture and Arts, Artport, Outset StudioMakers, Artis, and Asylum Arts.

Yaara Zach's works are included in various public and private art collections in Israel and abroad.
