Karam Natour (b.1992) is an artist and lecturer who lives and works in Tel Aviv. Natour’s practice employs a variety of mediums, including video, digital drawing, and installation, although he considers video his ‘mother tongue’. Through these, Natour reflects the fragmentation of identity — its characteristics, its fluidity, and how it is constructed by culture, gender, and nationality — through the use of humor, irony, and art history.
Natour completed both his B.F.A. & M.F.A. studies at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. His works have been exhibited in various museums and venues in Israel and abroad, including Tel Aviv Museum, Israel Museum, Kunstmuseum Bochum (Germany), Oberhausen Short Film Festival (Germany), Triumph Gallery (Moscow), Haifa Museum, and solo shows at Umm El Fahem Gallery, Rosenfeld Gallery, and Hulu Split Gallery (Croatia). Natour has received various awards including the 2020 Wolf Foundation’s Kiefer Prize for Young Artists and the 2019 Young Artist Award from the Ministry of Science Culture and Sport.Read more
