Amit Goffer is an Israeli artist currently living and working in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Over the past few years his work has incorporated multiple forms that include sculpture, installation and painting. Key issues within Goffers art practice explore human’s relationship to space, architecture and scale to question the social and political challenges within communities where diverse cultures and religions co-exist. His work investigates physical, mental and emotional conditions in situations of intense pressure, of observing and being observed and of hope and migration.
Interested in various forms of cultural expression, Goffers work seeks to deal with metaphorical attributes of architecture and the context in which it can be manifested. In doing so his installations consider the nature of how we live within and occupy space daily. For Goffer, the development of an installation is often influenced by the complex nature of an exhibition space. By inviting audience participation such work takes on a performative dimension that becomes further interpreted and realized through interaction.
Goffers committed to the idea that there is no ultimate truth: "Through my work I am aware of the instability of the perspective we take when we look at the world, as it always merges with the physical and psychological states of the viewer at the given time"
