About Elodie Abergel

Franco-Israeli artist Elodie Abergel has been part of the “contextual art” movement for several years, coupling her artistic work with her associative commitment to “Zellige Paris-Jerusalem”, where she is both the founder and coordinator.

After her studies in Fine Arts in Nantes, Elodie moved to Jerusalem to pursue her work on what she calls the “Territories of Sharing” (“Territoires de Partages”).

Through her artistic vision and works, Elodie has developed the concept of “art of the present moment”, offering up a humanistic yet poetic and critical view of politics in the Middle East. She identifies herself as a committed activist and sees this land as an open workshop. By immersing herself in the heart of the Israeli and Palestinian culture, she has developed an art which is participatory and engaging.

The focal point of her art is the territory she works within, the borders of which house her energy, whether they are visible or not. To convey this focus to her audience, she uses materials found in her surroundings, transforming them through different mediums (photography, installations, video, performance…) as a function of her expression. In her work, she also focuses on “repetition” to highlight the absurdity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
