Sharone Lifschitz is an award-winning artist and filmmaker. Her work in moving image, urban interventions and text based objects play at the interaction of the ephemeralities of experience, encounter and conversations and the concreteness of architecture, networks and public space. Her work emerges from lived experience and chance encounters to trace the shape of collective and personal memory in everyday occurrences. Many of her projects started with placing ads in newspapers or by traveling by train without a fixed destination for extended periods, allowing her to use the train as a home.
Her latest film The Visitor (2019), is a major collaboration with Pritzker Prize-winning Chinese architect Wang Shu. It was supported by the Architectural Association, the Ostrovsky Family Film Fund, Arts Council England, and The Elephant Trust. In 2014, Lifschitz’s work was the subject of a major survey show at the Jewish Museum Munich. She has had a solo show at the Jewish Museum in New York City and has been included in shows at the Royal Academy of Art, London; Wroclaw Contemporary Museum, Wroclaw; Haifa Museum of Art, Haifa; Weltmuseum, Vienna; Kunsthaus Dresden; Beit Hagefen Arab-Jewish Cultural Centre, Haifa; Red Line, Beer Sheva; Musée d'Histoire de la Ville de Luxembourg, Luxembourg City; The Soap Factory, Minneapolis; and House of World Cultures, Berlin.
In 2007, "Speaking Germany" was her winning entry in the international competition for the inaugural commission for QUIVID (Munich’s Art Program for Public Buildings) and the Jewish Museum Munich. The permanent part of her winning project can be seen on the external glass walls of the Museum in St. Jacobs Platz, Munich. Lifschitz received the 2010 Adi Foundation Prize in association with the Israel Museum. Her works are included in the collections of the Lenbachhaus Munich; the Jewish Museum Munich; the Great Eastern Hotel, London; and the Jewish Museum NYC, as well as in private collections.
Lifschitz trained as an architect at the Architectural Association, London, and the Cooper Union, New York. In 2002, she completed her MA in Fine Art at Central St. Martins. In 2017, she completed her PhD at the University of East London.
