GREGORY






Gregory Abou, performance and video artist (b. Melun, France, 1974, lives and works in Tel Aviv-Yafo since 2013), was recently showcased in the journal As Promised. Abou directs and films himself on location in natural and historic sites using unique scripts of personal ritual and objects of his own design. His work promotes mindfulness and sustainability. He has been awarded artist residencies in Gotland, Sweden (2009); the archipelago Lofoten, Norway (2016); the Yakushima Forest, Japan (2017); and in Israel. He completed studies in communications, and at the National School of Decorative Arts, Paris, before opening a studio for creative visual arts. In 2006, he was invited by the multifaceted Mathias Kiss to exhibit at his experimental gallery in the Marais Quarter. In 2012, his series AREYOUTHERE, 2009, was shown alongside prominent artists Matali Crasset and Arik Levy at the Grand Palais Art Paris Art Fair and as a solo exhibition at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in 2019, curated by Yona Fischer. In 2016, his film “Kinah” (Lament) was part of a major group exhibition with Marina Abramovic and Louise Bourgeois: À l’ombre d’Éros (In the Shadow of Eros) at the Royal Monastery of Brou.

In 2021, solo exhibition planned to open in March, “JETESAIS” (I Know You), at the Mishkan Museum of Art, Ein Harod.
