Event Type

Sunrise Civic Center Art gallery presents
The Memory Catcher, Artworks and Installation by
Yochi Yakir-Avin, an American Israeli visual Artist,
based in South Florida.

The exhibition explores the complexity and tangled
fabric of ancestry and family relationships, through
fragmented memory. Yakir-Avin stretches the line
between figurative and conceptual and combines
traditional techniques and new materials.
The artist lets her personal story filter into her work
to become a source of her creative expression, and
invites the viewers to interactively connect.

Born in Poland and based in South Florida since
2014, Yochi Yakir-Avin is a figurative artist, resident
at Studio 18 Art Complex.
She is a multidisciplinary artist with a focus on
representation and simplicity.
Simultaneously American and Israeli, Yakir-Avin
studied fine arts in Israel and Italy and has exhibited
internationally in Italy, France, Israel, and the USA.
She is a recipient of The Artist Support Grant 2022.
The exhibition was made possible, with the support
from the Broward County Cultural Division.
