Yael Davids lives and works in Amsterdam. She studied Fine Arts at the Rietveld Academie, Sculpture at the Pratt Institute and Choreography and Dance Pedagogy at the Remscheid Academie.

Her practice draws on a sculptural and performative vocabulary, in which the body is understood as a vessel wherein knowledge, memories, and habits are archived and enacted on a daily basis. As a trained instructor in the Feldenkrais Method, Davids often employs the method as a device for examining how the forces of psychology and physics influence perception, movement, relationality, and self-awareness.
