Shahar MARCUS

is an Israeli based artist who primary works in the medium of performance and video art  

born 1971 in Petach Tikva, he has graduated from the University of Tel Aviv with a degree in History of Art

his initial works dealt with the exploration of his own body and its limitations- incorporating various perishable materials, such as dough, juice and ice. His body served as an instrument, a platform on which various «experiments» took place.

food is also a major theme in Marcus’s works. by working with food, a perishable, momentary substance and by turning it into a piece of clothing or a set, Marcus also flirts with art history; transforming arbitrary objects and materials into something immortal and everlasting.

he has exhibited at various art institutions, both in Israel and around the world.
