Born in 1992, Roni Aviv (she/her) is a New York-based visual artist whose practice is at the intersection of photography, text, drawing, and installation.
In her work—which has been published and exhibited internationally—Aviv explores emotional residue through repetition and material change. She photographs different types of mark-makings performed onto paper using soaking, grinding, and tracing techniques. This practice is a visual and psychological inquiry into experiences and surfaces that are ubiquitous in everyday life and therefore often overlooked.
In 2021, Aviv was an artist-in-residence at NARS Foundation for which she was awarded the Artis Contemporary residency grant. Her book understanding (2021) comprises a thread of reactions and actions that build tension as a fragmented narrative is revealed through an examination of found text.
Aviv has also created a site-specific installation at House of Words, written for BOMB, and co-edited the publication Lines Inside with Lizzy De Vita for Tiger Strikes Asteroid.
She is a 2022 Workspace Artist-in-Residence at Center for Book Arts.
