About

Orly Anan is a visual artist and set designer interested in the intersection between ritual and contemporary art. Her research has led her to explore the traditions of various countries, from India to Mexico, these cultures being her main inspiration. The work of Orly Anan is born of the mysticism implicated in everyday life, in which spirituality is defined as the consciousness of the energy that unites and interweaves everything. She decontextualizes objects as an act of awareness, exchange, and feedback, giving rise to a highly personal aesthetic. She focuses mainly on scenography and space intervention, using everyday objects as tools of exploration.

Her film sets have been seen at film festivals such as Cannes, Tribeca, and Rhode Island. She currently lives between New York and Mexico City where she has had the opportunity to collaborate with artists including Marina Abramovic, Kris Moran, Daniel Arsham, Annie Leibovitz, Missy Elliot, and Usher. Her stage work has been published in magazines such as:

  • Vogue Italy 
  • V Magazine
  • T Magazine 
  • New York Times 
  • Harpers Bazaar 
  • Bullet Magazine 
  • L’Officiel Mexico 
  • L’Officiel Germany
