Inbar Hagai

Inbar Hagai is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker. She combines video, VR, and sculpture, as well as experimental films verging on the documentary, to humorously reflect on the absurdity of cultural conventions around prevalent fantasies of feminine adolescence, domestication and breeding of non-human animals, libidinal desires, and spatial actuality. She gained her BFA with honors from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design (Jerusalem, 2017), and is currently pursuing her MFA at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, 2024). Hagai studied in the class of Christian Jankowski, in Stuttgart, Germany, as part of a student exchange program (2016). Her works have been exhibited in venues such as The Center for Digital Art (Holon, 2023), Radiant Hall (PA, US, 2023), Hamidrasha Gallery (Tel Aviv, 2022), Hecht Museum (Haifa, 2021), Palermo Gallery (Stuttgart, Germany, 2016), CICA Museum (South Korea, 2017), Manifesta 11 (Zurich, 2016), and in film and media festivals such as PrintScreen (2019) and DocAviv (2017) in Israel, and NMFF (L.A., 2017), RIFF (Norway, 2017) and On Art (Warsaw, 2017).
