In Rovner’s first exhibition since her solo presentation at the Louvre last year, Pace presents new work that incorporates landscapes into videos projected onto stones. Operating on the boundaries of video and sculpture, Rovner's work explores issues of borders, archaeology, and cultural and political identity.

Michal Rovner (b. 1957, Israel) explores themes of physical and psychological boundaries, identity, and the human conditions of isolation and connection through works that combine sculpture, video, photography and installation. In Rovner’s work, geo-politically contentious situations become metaphors for the human situation, transcending cultural, spatial and historical specificity and serving as meditations on the ongoing cycles of destruction and creation, death and birth. In many of her works, Rovner creates a dialogue between projected material and physical object, using highly abstracted human figures as the building blocks of images to recall systems as diverse as writing or laboratory cell cultures, projected as moving images that seem to crawl across the pages of a book, migrate over stones gathered from throughout her native Israel, or grow and evolve in Petri dishes.
