Noa Heyne – Artist Talk

Bard College Berlin Lecture Hall, Platanenstr. 98a, 13156 Berlin

Inspired by architecture and classical sculpture as well as by marionette theater and animation, Heyne creates imagery and environments that are both playful and sinister. Her site-specific installations juxtapose animation, performance and sculpture to explore movement as agency, obstacle or circumstance. The visual and material language of her animation and sculpture, as well as the repetition inherent to her interactive installations call attention to the cycles of building and destruction that are characteristic of cities. Simple mechanisms such as pulleys or hydraulics call for the physical engagement of visitors with structures and objects  around them; they emphasize the way memories are carried by the body and bring into question the role of individuals as audience, participators, activators or full manipulators of their space. 

Noa Heyne (born in Israel, 1982) is a multidisciplinary artist working in sculpture, performance and animation. She began her artistic education as a painter at the Jerusalem Studio School (2005-2007) in the Master Class of Israel Hershberg, and moved on to study sculpture at the New York Studio School (2007-2008) in New York. She received her MFA from the Rinehart School of Sculpture, MICA in 2017. Her work was exhibited in solo and group shows in Israel, Germany and the US, and is part of private collections in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, New York and London. Heyne is the recipient of several awards, among them the LCU Foundation Award, the Amalie Rothschild '34 Award and the MICA LAB Award. In 2019 Heyne was a resident at the ZK/U Center, Berlin. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany. 

The artist talk takes place in connection to the course Contemporary Materials and Techniques taught by Director of Studio Arts John von Bergen
