The artistic and social work of the young French-Israeli artist Elodie Abergel has been for many years highly relevant to the contextual art movement.

Through her artistic works and actions (Territories to Share - Territoires de Partage*), she has developed an art of the present moment, offering a humanistic, poetic and critical outlook on the political situation in the Middle East, the place of women in society, the migratory crisis, the excesses of consumerism, etc. ...

She defines herself as a committed artist, an "artivist" who "uses territory as an open-air workshop and social immersion as a source of inspiration. From Jerusalem to Paris via New York, she also collects material, particularly photographs, to compose  digital works of art "by hand".

The issues of territory and identity are central to her work. In this process, she uses and puts her own twist on materials or objects from her environment, as well as different artistic media (photographs, installations, videos, performances ...) according to the message she aims to convey.
