Batsheva Ross           About / Contact               Works


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

In her practice, she adopts a 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 in her works existential issues, 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 agonize over projects for an extended time since this allows her to suspend any conclusions regarding the questions they raise, yet sometimes she finds herself interspersing this long process of thinking with short-range works that are carried out frenziedly and leaving no room for equivocation.
