Valeria Ganzman: Future Body

Valeria Ganzman: Future Body

Lives and works in Haifa, Israel

In 2017 I got diagnosed with breast cancer. The disease aroused my curiosity: there is something very beautiful and intriguing about sickness. The loss of my hair and the thought that I might lose my breast, made me wonder what femininity means.

I'm engaged in painting that stems from a constant search. I create many series of paintings of myself and especially of my body.

My work is not a monolog to the world, instead it’s a dialog with myself. I explore the body, because it’s my way to cope with my own past trauma and present fear.
