Ittah Yoda is formed by Kai Yoda and Virgile Ittah based between Berlin, Paris, 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.


Formé de Virgile Ittah et Kai Yoda, le duo artistique Ittah Yoda est basé entre Berlin, Paris, la Provence et Tokyo. Tous deux sont diplômés du Royal College of Arts de Londres.

Ittah Yoda construit son identité artistique à travers le numérique, vecteur de métissages et d’hybridations créatives transculturelles. De leur collaboration, voient le jour des formes réelles et virtuelles dont l’inspiration se puise dans la nature, notamment dans la relation de symbiose. Leur œuvre, plus que jamais dans le contexte de bouleversements mondiaux actuels, vise à questionner les nouveaux systèmes rhizomiques via la participation active du public et le libre cours laissé à l’erreur. Leurs expérimentations donnent lieux à des espaces où se déploient de nouvelles imaginations, ouvrant alors le champ vers une nouvelle appréhension, et compréhension, de la réalité. Leur travail s’inscrit dans la volonté de reconsidérer la relation sujet-objet et notre rapport au vivant. Tout cela dans un foisonnant entremêlement des matières et des matérialités, des différentes couches de réalités, tout comme des diverses cultures et des règnes.


カイ・ヨダとヴァージル・イッタによって2016年に結成、べルリン、パリ、東京拠点。 Royal College of Art (ロンドン)卒業。多様なバックグラウンドを持つ彼らは、コレクティブを通して伝統的な工芸やプロセスとデジタル・テクノロジーを組み合わせることで、デュオとしての芸術的アイデンティティを発展させた。人類の遺産と集合的無意識をつなぐ、リアル、バーチャル、参加型の形態を生み出す。
