Born in Nice, France in 1974, Dadoune moved to Israel with his mother in 1980. After settling in the southern city of Ofakim, he received Orthodox Jewish education. In his life and art he often acts to bring issues regarding his underprivileged hometown to the foreground of public discourse.
Dadoune’s first auto didactic artwork was a painting interwoven with Jewish and graphic motifs, which he created in the 1990’s during his studies at the Yeshivah. He then started experimenting with photography and video art, which are the mediums he is most known for today. In his films, Dadoune uses versatile cultural symbols, drama and artistic pathos, to question concepts of gender and identity.
Dadoune currently operates between Israel and France, connecting the two separate realities in both his life and work.
