Avi Krispin (Israel, 1980) is a video artist based in Amsterdam. She completed her bachelor and masters degrees at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and the Sandberg Institute. Krispin attended the prestigious artist residency Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2009, was nominated for the ISMAF award and won the AIAS prize of honor in 2006. She has exhibited internationally, and at festivals including the Kassel Documentary Film & Video Festival, the Moya Museum of Young Art in Vienna, and the Rietveld Arsenale in the Venice Biennale.

Through analyzing and reconstructing isolated moments in her short films, video installations and photos, she employs the suggestion of a loop, humor, and post production manipulation to magnify fragments and create highly controlled and staged situations in which characters remain trapped, doomed to repeat the same pattern again and again. She borrows elements taken from the glossy language of popular culture as a contradictory way of approaching an authenticity in her dissection of societal interactions – feeling that something is amiss, but finding a way to play along.
