Keren Anavy and Tal Frank – Collaborative Breeding Grounds

Ever since  the Israeli born artists Keren Anavy and Tal Frank  started working in their nearby studios in Tel Aviv, they have developed a unique artistic collaborative process in addition to their individual thriving art practices. Their collaboration has resulted in multiple imaginative and rigorous installations that have been exhibited internationally.  For Art Spiel, each of the duo sheds light on their collaboration, individual art, and upcoming plans. They also share their recent formative experience at the  Everglades National Park residency in Florida (AIRIE), where they have  further perfected their work process dynamics.
