I'm Orit Freilich
Orit Freilich is a multidisciplinary artist, fashion designer, and senior lecturer at the Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art in Ramat Gan, Israel. Her art explores practices and methods correlating with fashion, religion and women's representation and role in those two fields. During the past few years Freilich has established herself as a leading figure within the academic fashion agenda in Israel.
Orit Freilich’s artworks vary from video art, site specific installations, mixed media and others. Her artistic practice incorporates unconventional materials and technological methods usually unrelated to the art field. One of the materials that characterize Freilich’s work is handmade silicone, made in a technique she has developed herself. Additionally, one of the core mediums she integrates within her art, since the beginning of her artistic career at the 2000's, is technologically embodied imaging.
Over the years, Orit Freilich’s projects were displayed in three solo exhibitions and in numerous group exhibitions in galleries, museums, art fairs and events, both in Israel and abroad. One of her signature artworks is part of the Tel Aviv museum of Art collection, and others can be seen in private collections around the world. Freilich was awarded a scholarship by the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture (New York, 2015), and also earned several honorable awards for her excellency in the fields of art, design and teaching.
