Tomer Sapir (born 1977) lives and works in Tel Aviv. He received his MFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. In his “laboratory” he focuses on a compressed critical moment, examines the overlapping of biological/synthetic and tries to find the chemical formula for combining them. Through the mediums of sculpture, installation, drawing and collage he undermines common dichotomies by creating a world that exists between fiction/reality, joke/catastrophe. His work has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in Israel and abroad, among them are The Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Bass Museum in Miami, Haifa Museum of Art, Herzliya Museum, Apexart, NYC, Substitut, Berlin, Chelouche Gallery, Tel Aviv, Sommer Gallery for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, The GSA, Glasgow, Hôtel de Ville, Marseille and Künstlerhaus Speckstraße and Kutscherhäuser, Hamburg.
