Marcelle Tehila Bitton is a multidisciplinary artist working across diverse mediums such as installation, video, drawings, 3D interactive graphics, writing, social innovations, and creative content.
Her works often deal with questions of glamor and value, related to gender games, attribution, and belonging- through Kabbalistic customs and myths to canons of beauty, luxury, and hierarchical criteria within political and socio-cultural systems.
