  • What kind of collector are you? Do you consider long and hard before purchasing a piece or do you buy on impulse? Does your collection have a particular historic or geographic focus or does it follow the whims of your personal taste? Are you a risk-taker who likes to invest in artists early in their careers, or do you only buy works by established, proven artists? Do you buy works based on their historical significance, their investment value, or how it will complement your home’s décor? As winter ever so slowly loosens its grip on New York, collectors will be flocking to the Armory Show (March 5-8), now in its 17th year, at Piers 92 and 94, along with nine other fairs.

Zipora Fried, born in 1964 in Haifa, Israel, currently lives and works in New York. She graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts in Vienna, Austria. Her drawings, sculptures and photographic practice are an exercise in dichotomy– silent confrontation, restrained rawness and persistent fragility. She takes elements of biography, familiar or ordinary objects, and mimics and dislocates the everyday.

Recent solo exhibitions include Zipora Fried, On Stellar Rays, New York, NY (2013); Salon Noir, On Stellar Rays, New York, NY (2011); Trust Me. Be Careful., On Stellar Rays, New York, NY (2009);  Zipora Fried, Moti Hasson Gallery, New York, NY (2008); MACHISMO, PS Project Space, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2007); Works and Days, AR Contemporary, Milan, Italy (2006); All I thought and forgot, CCNOA, Brussels, Belgium (2005); Weighing Time, Galerie Terre Rouge/ Musée d'Art Moderne, Luxembourg (2004).
