    The current lot is one of several stills taken by photographer and filmmaker Lee Yanor of the Palermo Palermo performance choreographed by the late Pina Bausch. With a background in dance, Yanor cites movement as the primary source of inspiration in her work. Her distinct printing method allows her to endow her works with a palpable three dimensional feel that further energizes them and heightens the sense of free motion. “I was looking for crossed moments,” she recently stated, “between infinite tenderness, to a sudden explosion of violence and a loss of control...a magical freedom beyond any bodily experience, where anyone can turn momentarily to a dance.”

    Solo exhibitions of Yanor’s works include La Villette, Paris (1992), Bastille Theatre, Paris (1994); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (1994); Ramat Gan Museum of Art, Israel (2004); Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan (2007), and Judiska Teatern, Stockholm, Sweden (2010). Select group exhibitions include the Venice Biennale of Architecture (1996); Tel Aviv Museum, Israel (2003), and 798 Museum, Beijing (2009). She is the recipient of the Leon Constantiner Award at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel (2002).
