Romy Yedidia (Tel Aviv, 1990) is a visual artist working at the intersection of sculpture, installation, video, and performance. Her work comments on body control, the male gaze, and patriarchy; drawing parallels between gender performativity and architecture. The essential aspect of Yedidia’s practice is her usage of her body, often through time and endurance-based performative processes. By doing so, the artist aims to bring to the fore aspects of feminine performativity that are expected to appear effortless.
Romy Yedidia received a BA in Architectural Design from Gerrit Rietveld Academie (Amsterdam, NL) and is currently enrolled at a Fine Arts MA program at HEAD – Genève (Geneva, Switzerland). Yedidia was awarded the Stipendium for Emerging Artists by the Mondriaan Fund (NL). Her work was exhibited in venues such as De Bijenkorf (NL), Arti et Amicitiae (Amsterdam, NL), Jungkunst (Winterthur, Switzerland), U10 Art Space (Belgrade, Serbia), Art Rotterdam (Rotterdam, NL), W139 (Amsterdam, NL), Beelden in Leiden (Leiden, NL), Looiersgracht 60 (Amsterdam, NL), and UY Studio (Berlin, DE), among others. Yedidia’s work is part of Mondriaan Fund’s collection as well as part of other private collections.
