Assaf Shoshan (born in 1973, Jerusalem, lives and works between Paris and Tel Aviv) is 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 (2013-2014). His work was exhibited at the Villa Medici and at the Lambert Foundation as part of the exhibition "La disparition des Lucioles" in Avignon.
