Eyal Segal (b.1982) is an Israeli-born artist with German and Indian (Cochin) roots. His work interprets remembrance, the tradition of the past, and the possibility of self-understanding. The physical space is a central motif in his work and serves as a starting point for self-interpretation. Past and present are connected in a concrete ‘locus’; this idea is continually interwoven in a powerful aesthetic viewpoint, matched with the perception of space through multi-channel videos. Presenting multiple video works in combination, he incorporates positional relationships in the exhibition space and creates the possibility of new interpretations. The keyword for Segal’s work is ‘place’. Here, memory, history, human activities, and the traces of particular places are epically drawn on the screen. Furthermore, his video projects are composed and positioned such that they mutually influence each other, creating a sublimated site-specific installation in which the exhibition space itself forms an element of the work.
During his studies (2006-10), he began working as an assistant and later as the studio director of the artist Sigalit Landau, for a period of five years. In 2013, he broke into a personal career and presented his first solo exhibition at the Negev Museum of Art. has since participated in numerous exhibitions at museums, and international art festivals around the world, and with solo exhibitions and installations; 'Release: Return', FUGA Center, Budapest, 2015.
