Batsheva Ross           About / Contact               Works


Batsheva Ross (1977) was born in Jerusalem, currently based in Brussels.

In her practice, she adopts a subjective, contemplative approach to daily life and uses multiple media, which include installation, sculpture, painting, collage, drawing and writing.

Drawn from her religious upbringing, she explores existential issues in her works, touching upon epistemology, ethics, and mysticism. These subject matters comprise reflections on the question of authority, examining contemporary formulations of spiritual redemption and the complexity of care within a capitalist social structure.

Ross likes to dilly-dally and agonise over projects for an extended time, allowing her to suspend any conclusions regarding the questions they raise. Yet, sometimes, she finds herself interspersing this long thinking process with short-range works that are carried out frenziedly and leave no room for equivocation.
