One reason Uri Katzenstein’s works are currently on display in a solo exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art is that he is the 2014 winner of the Dan Sandel and Sandel Family Foundation Sculpture Award. Yet aside from this, Katzenstein – a highly imaginative sculptor whose works have been shown in art festivals, exhibitions and galleries throughout the world – is also a fascinating performance artist; a musician who plays pieces seemingly written far in the future; a maker of cutting-edge, sometimes shocking videos about hybrids; a builder of robots; an inventor of secret codes; and an artist who paints pictures in his own blood.He is probably also a genius, or nearly one. And with one arm tattooed with the names of people he says he loves, and a right earlobe elongated in the style of a Masai warrior, he is himself something of a work of art.
