Liorah Tchiprout

John Purcell Paper Award 2020

My work is concerned with belonging, girlhood and the theatrical. Informed by Jewish literature and the cannon of art history, I am interested in the contemporary relevance of drawing and play. I build physical puppet characters to construct my own pantheon from which to draw images. 

My recent work particularly examines the relationship between the theatre, and the theatrical space of work on paper. I am interested in ‘the fall from grace’, often in opera the leading womans fate, and the subversion of this in Phillip Roths Sabbaths Theatre, and Issac Bashevis Singers The Magician of Lublin.
