The exhibition "Maya Zack, Acting Memory. Video works, 2007-2017" opens on 3 october in the Contemporary gallery, on the occasion of the Nuit Blanche Parisian event. At the mahJ and for the first time in a French museum, Maya Zack is showing a trilogy of films made over a decade: Mother Economy (2007), Black and White Rule (2011) and Counterlight (2016-2017),
Recurrent figures in this trilogy are women dialoguing with the past and giving it substance. As the last survivors of the Holocaust are disappearing, the artist is questioning the risk of forgetting and the processes of memory.
Maya Zack's work is the result of a long period of research and creation, formalised in a language combining drawing, sculpture and video.
Maya Zack was born in Israel in 1976 and lives and works in Tel Aviv. She has had solo exhibitions in London, Rome, New York, Paris, Berlin, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Her videos have been acclaimed at European festivals. She was awarded the Celeste Prize in Berlin in 2008.
