Yael Davids lives and works in Amsterdam. She studied Fine Arts at the Rietveld Academie, Sculpture at the Pratt Institute and Choreography and Dance Pedagogy at the Remscheid Academie. Her practice draws on a sculptural and performative vocabulary, in which the body is understood as a vessel wherein knowledge, memories, and habits are archived and enacted on a daily basis. As a trained instructor in the Feldenkrais Method, Davids often employs the method as a device for examining how the forces of psychology and physics influence perception, movement, relationality, and self-awareness.

Yael Davids will present the context of her work in which the human body plays a central part. As a Feldenkrais Method practicioner Davids will present this method as a research device for comprehending the inner-workings of structures and prevailing tendencies — bodily, institutionally, artistically. Question to be tackled through this lecture is also how collective heritage and socially charged narratives become intertwined with the individual’s biography and sensibilities.
