Wild Heart , Installation view, 2017

Ruti De Vries is a Tel Avivian artist with a boundless ability to create richly decorated installations, minimalistic sculptures and dreamy animations using everyday materials. Her conceptual crafts include fascinating ritual sites and spaces of ethnic and religious adoration.

Some installations—like the huge matrimonial bed made out of heavy, black garbage bags and the overly decorated wedding venue—echo a romantic ideal. “This corny essence remains as a tacky fantasy, perishable as the feeble materials it is made of,” she says.

The artist portrays a powerful relationship between the animal and the human being through four-legged creatures and tackles the narrow perception towards women with the inclusion of Japanese female warriors. She defines her art to be rich, grotesque or even kitsch by nature.

De Vries has had numerous exhibitions and is currently showcasing her solo show, Wild Heart, at HaKibbutz gallery.
