The Red Room, Installation/Performance, Triangle Residency, Brooklyn, Dec 2015
Lior Tamim is an artist living in Brooklyn, New York. His installation-based work incorporates a wide variety of mediums, including photography, video, performance, painting, and sculpture. In his work he often transforms himself into different characters, fully adopting their way of life. Many of these characters are masculine archetypes: in recent years, he has lived as a hunter, a soldier, and a nomad. His work examines existential states, transcends conventional limits of self construction, and blurs the distinction between art and life. His installations are displays of violence and humor, engaging the viewer in an experience of intimacy and vulnerability.
Tamim is currently embracing the persona of a bodybuilder, maintaining an intense workout routine and a strict diet. He's preparing to show off his muscles in a professional bodybuilding competition in late 2016.
