My name is Or Peter, In the last decade I've had the pleasure of wearing several hats; as a graphic designer, a visual artist and an art educator.
I'm responsible, independent and creative.
An open minded team player determined to
provide the qualities and products that you require.
In my art I often examine the different facets of my identity by observing the hidden context and history that sexual identities and political structures provide. While my art is diverse in terms of the media I employ, I am particularly drawn to performance and installation. For me, masking my appearance is a path to self-expression that allows me to discern my moral, political and philosophical standpoint. I often try to deconstruct patterns of masculine myths and other sexual attributes and tropes.
In general, I feel that the optimal conditions for me to produce are outside the white studio walls, experiencing different interactions in which I am stimulated and can re-examine my social and political perspective. In this sense, I see my practice as an art teacher as an important part of the artistic process itself.
In my art I also try to raise questions that are considered taboo, such as sexual relations in the family, and look at the ways art is received and perceived when it has a political import. Most specifically, In the last year I have explored what triggers ignite the censorship of art in Israel, and wrote about the attempts to limit and censor art in Israeli society and created an archive of those attempts which I find pertinent to my artistic endeavor.
