Orly Anan (b. 1987) is a Colombian/Israeli visual artist and art director whose work explores various mystic and spiritual traditions in a distinctive visual language that brings together visual arts, theater, and costume design. Informed by the histories of Surrealism, Bauhaus, and science fiction, Anan creates imaginative performances and installations where shrines, rituals, iconographies and temples of various spiritual traditions connect the viewer with a sense of holiness and sacredness. Exceeding the confines of any specific belief, her work incorporates elements that reflect an interests in Kabbalist mysticism, carnivalesque and masquerade practices, and Afro-Diasporic and Indigenous cosmogonies, among others.

A rising figure in the Latin American contemporary art scene, Anan has recently exhibited her work at the Venice International Art Fair (Venice, 2023), Museo Marco (Monterrey, 2023), Museum of Museums (Seattle, 2022), MUTEK Festival (CDMX, 2022), Festival Grec (Barcelona, 2022), and Art Basel (Miami, 2020). Interdisciplinary in nature, Anan's practice has reached far and wide, including independent artistic projects, such as EIN SOF (MUBI premiered) and El ombligo como centro cósmico, as well as collaborations with notable Latin American musical artists such as Zoé's León Larregui, Bomba Estéreo, Sotomayor, and Lido Pimienta. Her unique practice has gained the attention of major publications including Forbes, Art Observed, Elle, Architectural Digest, and artnet.
