Aharon Ozery


My work lays strong emphasis on circular action. My videos, installations, sculptures and drawings deal with machines and mechanisms whose continuously looped workings and lack of obvious purpose combine to define the mythical matrix, or dreamscape, in which they operate.

In most instances my work is marked by a discrepancy between industrial appearance and presumed functionality on the one hand and actual purposelessness on the other hand. Like an Ouroboros chasing its own tail, it is contained in a cosmos whose mythical dimension requires no justification, and where each action forms part of a ritual.
