Moran Sanderovich

b 1980 Tel Aviv. Lives and works in Berlin.


In my work, I seek to create new creatures and embody alternative human forms. Engaging in the grotesque and uncanny to produce visceral narratives of agency, transformation and potentiality. The work aims to challenge and confuse normative conceptions of bodily limitation, taking disability, mutation, and decay as starting points for new forms of life. Working through combining a range of materials, including silicone, fabric, industrial waste, toys, organic objects such as bone and hair, latex, and other found objects. The juxtapositions of the different materials unhinge the normative perception of objects, confronting dissonant images that require attention. Fabricating skin­like surfaces that appear nearly organic, some of the work include the use of animatronics, giving the sculptures a strange presence between living and not­living.
