Born in 1985, Tal Alperstein lives and works in Tel-Aviv. In 2009, Alperstein completed her BFA studies at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, in Jerusalem, Israel, and her MA at the Steve Tisch School of Film and Television- Tel-Aviv University, Israel.

 

Alperstein works mainly in performance art. In recent years many of her works were solo actions. Lately, Alperstein Started to create also Video Performances, using the video as a site for the live action, considering the different time-set. To reach that effect, Alperstein uses the set as an event, making room for the unexpected, and directing the performers with tools of live art.

 

Alperstein's pieces try to answer the question of how we give form to things, considering the form as a social structure. Working with abstraction of everyday interaction and relationships as well as dealing with the topic of time she is trying to create a gap allowing the audience to look upon human situations. Alperstein is looking for the little nuances and differences of human reaction to the action they are brought into demanding the audience to pay attention.

 

Alperstein was travelling with her performances in many exhibitions and festivals for Performance Art, in Israel, Europe and East Asia. She has also participated in numerous group exhibitions in venues such as CCA Tel-Aviv, Haifa museum of art, Kaunas Biennial in 2017 and Mousonturm in Frankfurt. Lately she has also participated in EnCounters- a German-Israeli Artist exchange, celebrating 50 years for the German-Israeli diplomatic relations.

 

As a Curator Alperstein Created an exhibition of 15 Artists Performing live actions at the Gallery of the MFA program of Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. The exhibition was time-based and took place in different spaces throughout the building. It combined different approaches to performance art.
