I met with Michal Rovner at Pace Gallery to see the opening of “Evolution” which is the gallery’s first exhibition of Rovner’s work in Geneva. The show coincides with the opening of Rovner’s “Dislocation” show at Espace Muraille, also in Geneva, which we went to together afterwards. Rovner was born in 1957 in Israel, and had a solo show of her video work at the Whitney Museum of America Art in 2002. She then represented Israel at the Venice Biennale in 2003. She has been represented by Pace Gallery since 2003. Rovner is currently working on installations for the public realm at the new Canary Wharf Crossrail station in London.
