Orit Ben-Shitrit is a Moroccan-Israeli interdisciplinary artist educated in New York and showing internationally. Orit works in photography, video and choreography. She has been utilizing movement and bodies to address issues of domination and the potential for violence. These issues developed through three main topical themes: cycles of violence in the Middle East, invisible mechanisms of political, religious and economic control; and conflicted beings trapped in bodies. The works span a spectrum of historical references, combined with ideas that relate to co-dependency, inner demons and behavioral disorders in texture-rich imagery.
