The work of Israeli artist Romy Achituv (b. 1958, Rome, IT) is concerned with issues of language, time and memory. He is interested in the language of visual representation and in the dynamic between spectatorship and interaction. Trained as a sculptor, Achituv works across mediums and disciplines. His new media work includes an exploration of digital expressions of time and space. Archituv takes concepts and paradigms from the world of computers and new media and turns them into physical installations. In recent years, he has turned his attention to site-specific, socially engaged projects. His work has been widely exhibited and is included in large international collections. Romy Achituv has been living and working in Seoul, South Korea, for the past five years. He is based in New York.
