Yairi explores historically, culturally, or politically charged local places that are also associated with his personal biography and memory. Whether it is a Leper Hospital or a writer’s library, an abandoned Arab village, a cheap hotel room or a museum undergoing renovation – all are transformed through his personal perspective, deconstructing and recomposing spaces, times and events.
Yairi’s works have been featured at international museums, galleries, and festivals, and are included in public and private collections. He is a recipient of the Ministry of Culture Award for Visual Arts, 2017.
