Hila Laser Beja's multi-media installation examines politico-social and personal power structural dynamics from the standpoint of the concealed. Steel beams, concrete sewage shafts, and ready-mades from construction sites are among the heavy building components used.
Her art delves deeply into the complexities of odor, grime, and human waste, culminating in an imagined birth of Venus, whose entire beauty rests in the stark truth about the concealed. Her work raises self-reflective issues regarding The Lab, the nature of the artistic experiment, and the act of curatorial text writing.
