Hadassa Goldvicht received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (2004) and her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York (2007).
Her work revolves around the relationship between language and hierarchy, attempting to read and rewrite the emotional and social/political texts written in the body.
Moving back and forth from large scale public interventions to works created within the private domain, she creates intimate exchanges with members of communities and institutions. Thinking of intimacy as a way of reconstruction, she transforms the public domain into a private one, and vice versa.
