Ram Katzir is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. Katzir’s art works often have a disorienting nature: inside is outside, the tragic is comical, and what seems far away is actually very near. The result is a world in which the foreign and the familiar coexist in unexpected ways. The search for home, be it physical or spiritual, is a recurring theme in his oeuvre.
In recent years Katzir concentrated on public art commissions working in close association with city planners, landscape designers and architects. Katzir’s public sculptures have been placed in forty land mark locations across the world.
Katzir had solo exhibitions in numerous museums including the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, The Israel Museum, Jerusalem and Kyoto Art Center. Katzir’s work has also been exhibited at MoMA, New York, the Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, Guangzhou 4th Triennial and Shanghai Sculpture Biennial.
