Ora Ruven

Labyrinth Museum, 2022

VR experience for HTC Vive, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and Mobile VR

What makes the Art Museum a labyrinth? The mythological place that housed the monster that ate the young people who were thrown into it and could not find their way out. Much has been written about visitors to the Museum of Art who err among the many spaces gathered together, wondering in front of the texts written in ornate language, and embarrassed in front of works of art of the kind that say "even my little boy knows how to fiddle like this." And the artists? They are eager to display their work in a museum. This is the purpose of everything. I am in a museum, which means I exist, in the words of the philosopher. Here you will see what I did, and I place in the virtual labyrinth some of my works, confronting them with monuments that the whole world knows. And as time goes on I do not know: my work will / will not hang on one of these endless walls, and will lie / or not, in one of its warehouses lost and forgotten like the girls thrown to the Minotaur who devoured them and they disappeared into it.

Teaser (Hebrew with English Subtitles):

Hebrew Version (long):


I'm an interdisciplinary artist, based in Tel Aviv. I made my first works as autodidactic stone sculptor. During 3 years I had participated stone symposia in Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Israel, created monumental sculptures of 3 meters. Than I had my art study in Beit Berl Ha-Midrasha. My new way is based on two kind of interests: I'm attracted by the human relation to the naked body, and the digital and material integration in new media artworks. The Israeli reality is very turbulent. In my art I react to the reality. It can't be otherwise, because the personal is political and vice versa. My projects dealt with the female gaze at naked men; self portrait in old age; the future of children in Israel, contemporary cultural body painting on clay vases, In PC work I put mosques in Tel Aviv, with cardboard and newspapers I made dynamic installations, with the visitor's participation  -  gesture to old Pompeii, and I paint 3D paintings in virtual reality.
