Ohad Fishof is an artist and musician working in a diverse range of fields including sound, dance, video,performance and installation.

Fishof began his artistic career as a musician with the pioneering Israeli art-pop band Nosei Hamigbaat. He later moved to compose music for dance, performance and art installations while at the same time, expanding his artistic endeavors to other media. In 1997 he received an MA in Dance from Laban Center London. He spent the following years creating dance and performance pieces as well as sound and video installations in London, where he was then based. His performance collaboration with Uri Katzenstein, Home, was presented as part of the 2001 Venice Biennial.

Over the last fifteen years, Fishof has been consistently expanding his ever- growing body of work – a difficult-to-categorize continuum of idiosyncratic time-based art, ranging from improvised music to site-specific performance work, video animation, installations, dance pieces and soundtrack work.

In 2005 he performed in London A Slow Walk for Longplayer, a performance work commissioned by Artangel. In 2006 he created the performance multimedia piece SU in Tokyo, in collaboration with Japanese artist Uzo Ishiyama. In 2007 he formed Bney Hama with fellow musician Ishai Adar - an electronic avant-pop duo in which he plays circuit bent instruments and sings. His installation and performance project Memo was one of the highlights of Art TLV 2008, Tel-Aviv's first Art biennial. In the same year Fishof was named chosen Artist of the Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation. In 2010 he presented the installation The Sauna at The Petach-Tikva Museum and was granted a visiting artist residency at the Department of Dance in Ohio State University (he returned to OSU two years later for another residency period). His short film Abduction won first prize for Best Experimental Film at the Jerusalem Film Festival 2011. In 2012, together with Noa Zuk, he created Nothing II, a dance piece for a cast of 15; Premiered the audio-visual solo performance work A Lecture on Architecture and performed it in Israel, Japan and The USA; And won the Ministry of Culture Award. In 2013 he presented four new works: The Duck, a light, text and sound installation in Ashdod museum; Slow Walk Rothschild, a short film documenting a performance piece created during the social uprise in Israel in 2011; The dance solo Nothing III (with Noa Zuk); And the short film Nothing.

His latest solo performance evening, a double bill that includes his most recent performance work HD, was premiered as part of Print Screen New Media Festival in 2014. His latest choreographic collaboration with Noa Zuk, AN OLD WOMAN PICKING A STONE FROM THE GROUND AND CARRYING IT BACK TO HER HOUSE, was commissioned  and premiered in 2014 by Singapore’s Frontier Danceland.
