Show Notes

Leni Dothan is an Israeli-born artist, architect and researcher based in London, dealing with the overlooked representations of women – especially mothers – in art history and contemporary culture. Through the prism of a mother to a boy, a foreigner in the West, she creates sculptures, photographs, videos and installations that suggest new narratives other than the perfect and ideal mother-and-child relationship. Dothan completed her MFA and PhD at the Slade School of Fine Art, London. Leni also works collaboratively with scientists to raise awareness on eco-political subjects and environmental issues. Dothan presents her work around the world in galleries and museums and she is represented by MTArt Agency.

Leni has also shown her work 'Mine'(2012) and 'Double'(2015) at the Desperate Artwives 'The M Word' exhibition at One Paved Court gallery in 2019.
