Tamy Ben-Tor Performance
Performance artist Tamy Ben-Tor invents tragicomic characters to investigate politics, social systems, and issues of identity. Using spoken word, various soundtracks, costumes, masks and wigs, Ben-Tor's videos and performances are a hysteric embodiment of her surroundings and an amplified over exaggerated interpretation of “Normal."
“My consciousness is a sponge absorbing all of contemporary filth. The artistic process for me, in the form of a performance, is to solidify this sponge into a hard stamp tool and press it back onto the audience's consciousness for the duration of the performance. At the end, I hope they come out of it stained, impressed, as I am, by the ailments of this time which we live in.” - Tamy Ben-Tor
