Assi Meshullam

Assi Meshullam is a contemporary, multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Israel.

“My work in the studio is very ceremonial. It’s ritualistic, the work with the object. I have to believe in the object, just as people once believed in objects. It’s less a set ceremony and more a state of mind. I’m fairly spontaneous, I play music, and things happen as I work. It’s almost a religious experience.”
