Micha Laury is a self-taught artist. The body has been at the heart of his installations and performance art since the 1970s.

He explores his own extremities and frontiers. Laury’s drawings and installations depict the human figure trapped by obstructions and constraints.

The artist tirelessly seeks out the limits of what is possible and calls into question the links between what is natural and artificial and the mind and the body.

Brain Installation – his project – was created in partnership with brain researchers and research institutions in Israel. Indeed, the brain is one of the main themes of his work. In this particular project, he has created a sculptural space made up of neural networks, electrical circuits and glass pieces.

Laury’s work process and his formal unconventional language are important facets of an artistically innovative and socially relevant discourse.

Micha Laury's work can be viewed in exhibitions and collections in France and abroad.
