Davide Balula was born in 1978, and currently lives and works between Paris and New York. His work is articulated around sound, electronic, and visual devices. The participation of the viewer is often required to activate his pieces. Familiar objects and forms are taken out of their context, in artworks where the border between reality and simulation disappears. His artistic practice crosses visual and sound and complete the musical aspect of his activities (albums on the French label Active Suspension in particular).
He has held solo shows at Frank Elbaz, Paris; Fake Estate, New York, and Confort Moderne in Poitier among others. He also recently staged performances at Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Pompidou Museum, Paris; and Performa, New York, and was part of numerous group exhibition including, the Pompidou Museum, Paris; Eleven Rivington, New York, Thadeous Ropac, Paris, MassMOCA, MOCA Miami,MAC/VAL, Vitry Sur Seine, Songwon Art Center, Seoul, Fondation Cartier, Paris, Bieledefer Kunstverein, Germany.
