Nelly Agassi was born in Tel Aviv in 1973 and now lives and works in Chicago. She works in performance, installation, video, textile, and paper. Her artwork addresses the idea of the body and notions of intimacy within public space in relation to architecture. Her work engages both the personal and emotional as well as universal concepts. Agassi is a 2001 graduate of the MA program of combined media in Chelsea Collage of Art and Design, London, UK. She has received the Nathan Gottesdiener Foundation for Israeli Art Prize and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art award for artistic encouragement from the Israel Ministry of Science, Culture and Sport. Agassi has shown her work extensively throughout the world – in sites such as the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, Doritto Rovesscio, Milan Triennial, Poor Farm, USA, and at the Tate Modern in London.
