Avital Baron Izackov
I am a Self-taught Multidisciplinary Artist. I work with Collage, Video, and Photography and am currently working on several art and documentation cooperations.
My work is inspired by my love to Art history, Photography and my multicultural life experience as a Diplomat’s child , living in Europe.
Gender and Cultural identity take an important place in my work from a collective and an autobiographic point of view .
I was born in Brussels Belgium in 1964 and am currently living in Binyamina, Israel. I am married and a mother of 2 daughters.
As a diplomat’s child, I spent my childhood between Italy, Belgium and Israel, a way of living that had a great impact on my art.
Throughout the years I have been involved in many creative artistic activities and have given workshops for adults, children and companies.
I began my art career working on collages and in 2012 I started exploring new artistic mediums: mainly installations and cooperations in art projects with people who came from diff disciplines.
In 2012 I was invited by the “Artist’s Hassuka project” in Binyamina to initiate a cooperative gallery with a group of artists. We named the gallery “ANU Gallery”-which means in Hebrew -“We”.
This cooperation was an important milestone in my career and made it possible for me to explore a variety of art medias I was enthusiastic about, particularly art installations.
I have a B.A. in Art History and French Literature from Tel-Aviv University and studied Interior Design at the “Hasadna” school in Tel-Aviv.
