Assaf Shoshan (born in 1973) in Jerusalem. He lives and works between Paris and Tel Aviv. As a photographer and video artist, Shoshan questions a world where boundaries appear and disappear endlessly. His portraits and landscapes reveal an enigmatic atmosphere, shrouded in mystery. Between reality and fiction, Shoshan’s work has a poetic impact, it explores a fundamental human dimension: the quest for identity, the feeling of exile and belonging. Shoshan was a fellow resident at the French Academy in Rome – Villa Medici between 2013 and 2014. His work was exhibited, most notably, at the Villa Medici as well as : The Lambert Foundation (2014); Paris Photo (2016) as part of The Pencil of Culture show at the Centre Pompidou; and the Kanal-Centre Pompidou in Brussels (2018). His work has also been shown in several galleries and museums such as the Macro – Museum of Contemporary Art (Rome) The Negev Museum of Art (Beer-Sheva). He has also participated at the Fifth Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, and has recently shown a retrospective of his work at The Jewish Museum of Belgium (2020/2021). Shoshan’s works have been acquired by private collectors and state institutions across Europe, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the French National Contemporary Art Fund (FNAC), the Musée Français de la Photographie in Bièvres, France, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. A monography of his work has been published in Motsa (Éditions Le Pavé dans la Mare, 2006) and Territoires de l’Attente (Diaphane Edi- tions, 2013).
