Rotem Volk is a performance artist, director, and theater-maker. She creates interdisciplinary theater projects, site-specific performances, and audio-walks in urban spaces. With the participation of the audience, many of her works reflect political, cultural, and social issues and examine the urban environment. Again and again, Rotem Volk tries to question the roles of performer and audience and, in Marina Abramovic’s words, to “invent situations in which no one has yet been.”
“The theme of home and the never-ending search for a sense of feeling at home have been major topics of interest and investigation in both my personal and artistic life. The corona virus has definitely resurfaced these themes in new ways and created new points of view on this already charged subject.”
For the home.frankfurt.telaviv project, Volk will work as a delivery person for a restaurant delivery service — an invisible network that connects city households around the clock and sometimes becomes the only contact with the outside world. This will be a long-running performance during which she will use sound, video, and photography to document her bike rides throughout the city and the encounters with people in their homes.
