Leni Dothan

MULTIDISCIPLINARY

Leni Dothan is an Israeli-born artist, architect and researcher based in London who blends her skills and knowledge in dealing with the overlooked representations of women and especially mothers in art history and contemporary culture, as well as eco-political urgent subjects. She has been represented by MTArt Agency since 2017. As a mother to a boy living away from her birth home, she creates sculptures, photographs, videos and installations that suggest new narratives other than the perfect, ideal vision of a mother-and-child relationship. Dothan aims to touch on the less discussed and underrepresented aspects of the mother and child relationship and help the public to question their own bodies, social norms and political structures.

Inspired by working collaboratively with scientists and the public on eco-political subjects, Dothan is currently working to create a purifying sculpture that could fight air pollution and harmful bacteria, including the Covid-19 virus, and would invite passers-by to a mental and physical contemplation, meditation and purification.

Leni Dothan has exhibited her work in museums around the world, including The Jewish Museum in London, the MAMbo Museum in Bologna and the Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain Occitanie in France, as well as galleries, including Richard Saltoun Gallery and Hå Gamle Prestegard in Norway.
