Tamy Ben Tor

The work of Tamy Ben-Tor is a fusion of: Cindy Sherman, Kara Walzer, Alex Bag, Kafka, the Yiddish theatre, and Greek tragedy. Like Sherman, Ben-Tor uses costumes, wigs and make-up to transform herself, into a variety of female personas who recite surreal monologues. These are not the kind of people you would want to find yourself sitting next to on a long flight. They are bigoted, petulant, bitter, bewildered-and unnervingly familiar.
