Roi Carmeli (b. 1982 in Tel-Aviv, Israel) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. He Graduated with distinction a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem (2010) and a Master of Fine Arts with Merit from the Glasgow School of Art (2015).
In his work, Carmeli links present times to early civilisations, reconnecting humans and bridging the modern day singularities defined by race, nations, or states. His curiosity at the fragility of memory, the nature of time, spatial rhythm, and movement is conveyed through the use of sculpture and audiovisual Narratives. He distinctively uses sound not as background, but as a tangible material in and of itself.
