Haim Sokol

1973, Arkhangelsk

Haim Sokol is an installation, sculpture, and video artist whose practice addresses the dramatic social histories of Russia and Eastern Europe. Though many of his works teeter on the edge of fiction and fantasy, Sokol roots his use of literary allusion in historical reality and the legacy of major 20th century uprisings, revolutions, massacres and genocides. By compounding the grim realities of urban life with the complexity of exile and socio-political diaspora, Sokol’s works effectively capture experiences of alienation, isolation and disrupted communication.

Graduated from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem (1996 B.A., 2004 M.A.) and the Moscow Institute of Contemporary Art (2007).

Participated in “The School of Kiev” 2nd Kiev Biennial, 1st Indian Biennale (Kochi-Muziris, 2012), the 3rd Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2009) and other exhibitions in Russia and internationally.

Nominated for Innovation price 2008, 2014. Winner of Special Stella Art Foundation prize in 2009.

Teacher at the Rodchenko School of Photography and Multimedia in Moscow.

Lives and works in Moscow.
