Shir Ende’s work considers the reconstruction of space and the construction of fluid boundaries to form perpetual change of an environment. Her work often engages in a conversation with people, objects, and spaces as an attempt to intervene, adapt, and negotiate between her presence and its surroundings. She was born in Israel, relocated to China and currently resides in Chicago. Through video, installation and performative processes, she investigates how one settles in a space and modifies it with the use of domestic objects to create lines, structures, and architecture. Ende has exhibited in Chicago and has participated in the Sponsored Artist Residency with High Concept Laboratories. Ende received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2015.
