Ittah Yoda was formed by Kai Yoda and Virgile Ittah and based between Berlin, Paris, Provence and Tokyo. They both attended the Royal College of Arts in London. Coming from diverse backgrounds, Ittah Yoda have developed their artistic identity as a duo through digital technology, a vector of cross-cultural creative collaborations. Their collaboration gives birth to real, virtual and participatory forms that connect the heritage of humanity and the collective unconscious. Focusing on the collective and error, they explore the possibility of new collaborations between multiple cultures and space.

Their artwork unfolds as vast generative and performative installations. Hosting a refined Artificial Intelligence, their pieces are continuously changing and ramifying according to their own dreamlike variations, in collaboration with the visitors' gestures. The whole haptic experience falls within a therapeutic approach and forms an attempt to reframe ways of communicating and living together, in the dawn of symbiocene.

Ittah Yoda is currently starting an artist's residency at the Fiminco Foundation as well as at the University of Paris Saclay and Inria where they are collaborating with researchers in artificial intelligence. Among their recent exhibitions, we can cite: Never the same ocean, Galerie Jérôme Poggi Paris (FR); The owls are not what they seem, Andrehn Schiptjenko Gallery, Stockholm (SE) "Le Temps scintille et le Songe est savoir, (solo), Double Sejour, Clichy Poush Manifesto (FR); Never the same Ocean at Hagiwara Projects, Tokyo (JP); Incarnations at the Rencontres d´Arles, (FR); Body alights - a fragmented memory (solo) at Sprout Curation, Tokyo (JP); 06, PM / AM Gallery, London (UK); IN TOUCH - a visual dialogue, Carlier Gebauer, Berlin (DE).
