Tchelet Pearl Weisstub, Proud Jerusalemite, Guilty oppressor, Ageing body, Theatre maker, Visual artist, MOTHER working & living in Amsterdam.
Weisstub’s practice brings together performance & sculpture in installations that are primarily concerned with vulnerability. In an era where mass computing has overcome our embodied limitations (as the ability to store our memories , never to forget) Weisstub perceives a predominant social climate that denies natural processes of decay. By appropriating technologies, old and new, and placing them in dialogue with what it is to be human. Weisstub’s work creates a space to share our human vulnerability and understand it as a collective ontological condition.
Graduating Das Arts - Master of Theatre Amsterdam (2014) and Rijksacademie residency program in 2016–2017 Amsterdam. Weisstub’s works are interdisciplinary.Influenced by Andrea Tarkovsky’s concept of ‘sculpting in time’, she produces exhibitions as time based experiences, mise-en-scènes made from objects that in encompass the presence of life.
