Elana Katz is a conceptual artist working primarily in the medium of performance art. Katz’s work confronts cultural conventions, critically examines the complexity that lies within contradictions, and thus aims to provoke experiences of ”unlearning” the assumed.
Katz has exhibited/ performed at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium (2011), Diehl CUBE, Berlin (2013), P.P.O.W. Gallery, New York (2013), DNA Berlin (2015), ROCKELMANN&, Berlin (2016 -19), IEEB 7th of Bucharest (2017), Gallery KWADRAT, Berlin (2017-20), DFBRL8R Performance Art Gallery, Chicago (2019), and the Museum of Sundsvall, Sweden (2019-20), where her work has been recently acquired into the museum’s permanent collection.
In 2020, in cooperation with Gallery KWADRAT, she founded the Berlin contemporary art space House for the End of the World, where she curates a program focused on site-specificity.
Katz has been based in Berlin since 2008.
