Thomas Israël

After a career as an actor and a designer in theater, Thomas Israel enters in the contemporary multi-media creation with “Horizon TröM», a performance installation around the dream and the death. He is quickly invited with his videos and interactive installations to various European festivals (Vidéoformes 2006-07, Transnumériques 2006-08, les Bains Numériques 2009) and International museums (MoMA NY 2006, Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille 2008, Les Abbatoirs de Toulouse 2009, Europalia Chine 2009).

In 2007 he made his first video sculpture at the Jozsa Gallery, a work he pursued in Shanghai (2007) and Valence (with the pazYcommedias Gallery 2008).

In parallel, he collaborated on performances and videos with other artists as Jacques Urnabska (Percept 2009) or the choreographer Manon Oligny at the Société Des Arts Technologiques de Montréal and at the Centre National de la Danse à Paris (2006-07). He presented his latest works at the contemporary art fair ARTBrussels (2007-08), as well as at the Aéroplastics Contemporary Gallery (2009). Furthermore, he is regularly supported by the Digital Art Commission of the French community (There is no spoon 2007, Méta-crâne 2009).

Since 2010, some institutions as Holliday Inn Brussels Airport or the Bureau International Jeunesse commissioned him interactive works.

His first monograph was published in 2012 at the Lettre Volée.
