Biography

Thomas Israël (1975) is a multimedia artist based in Brussels, who creates installations and video performances that are immersive and interactive works. Coming from a contemporary theatre background, his atypical and transdisciplinary approach to digital arts revolves around societal themes, the body, time and the subconscious.

He is a theatre director and video designer for stages such as the Bordeaux Opera, Tokyo Opera City, Theatre Impérial de Compiegne, Theatre de l'Athene in Paris, Charlerois-danse and Varia Theater.

Skinstrap, his first performance in body-mapping, won a prize at the prestigious Japan Media Art Festival 2013.

His work has been shown at the MoMA in New York, at the Society for Arts and Technology in Montreal, at the Musée des Abattoirs in Toulouse and, since 2005, at many festivals, fairs, galleries and museums around the world. He is represented by Galerie Charlot in Paris & Tel-Aviv.
