Oren Pinhassi examines the relationship between the human figure, nature and the built environment in his evocative installations. His sculptures are frequently a combination of the superfluous and the ergonomic, erring towards the utopian. They mimic familiar objects, seeking to render visible the ways that humankind builds the world in its own image.
Pinhassi’s work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including, Kiang Malingue, Hong Kong (2022); Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, Germany (2021); Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles, USA (2021); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Lissone, Lissone, Italy, (2019); Castello San Basilio, Basilicata, Italy (2019); Palazzo Monti, Brescia, Italy (2019); Tina Kim Gallery, New York, USA (2019); Yossi Milo, New York, USA (2019); and David Zwirner, New York, USA (2018).
Born in Tel-Aviv in 1985, Pinhassi lives and works in New York City. He received an MFA from Yale in 2014 and B.Ed.F.A. in 2011 from Beit-Berl College, Hamidrasha School of Art.
