Nadia Perlov is an interdisciplinary artist invested in cultural history and languages as well in its production, with a focus on the flow of migratory cultures, exploring their narratives and complex identities in relationship to politics, architecture and territory. Nadia Perlov draws lines between Jewish history and identity, and the cultural-political discourse of decolonization in Israel Palestine. In her work she uses video, narration, animation, collage, costume making, dance and music to look through broad historical movements.
