Zohar Kfir is a Montréal-based video artist working with experimental video, interactive art and installation. She holds a MFA from Concordia University's Studio Arts Programme and a MPS from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). Her artistic practice deploys non-linear narrative to cover a wide range of topics; from poetic meditations to documentary interventions. Zohar has shown her work internationally in galleries and at video festivals, including Transmediale [2003-2004]; NYUFF; FACT Liverpool; ICA Center for the arts in Boston; Makor Gallery in NYC; Jerusalem Film Festival; 56th Oberhausen Film Festival and most recently was a finalist at the Biennale Internationale des Poètes MAC/VAL museum, France. During 2013, Zohar received both Media Arts Canada Council for the Arts and a Vivacité Montréal (CALQ) grants to develop her latest project, Shooting Back-- an interactive web-based documentary art project, which explores Palestinian life stories and events. The basis for this documentary project is video footage from B'Tselem's video advocacy project, the Camera Distribution Project.
