Dana Nechmad

Burden of Compensation, 2018, textile and video installation (detail)

Dana Nechmad’s work focuses on the power of the body and its sexuality, a subject that dominates both the personal and the social spheres.

Her fascination is not with the beauty of the flesh but with the emotion it arouses. In her practice she moves between painting, drawing, textile manipulation, embroidery and video. Everything is considered as a drawing, sometimes it’s made with a brush but just as often is made with thread or the body. Dana searches to understand human behavior, our desire for control, and the illusions and delusions that it often generates.

Dana Nechmad received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2018. MA in Philosophy from the Tel Aviv University in 2014 and BFA from The Libera Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence Italy in 2010.
