© Copyright 2016 Nawaat. Adnen Jdey Montages de la mémoire Singulière, la démarche plastique de Nidhal Chamekh est de celles qui s’acheminent sans hésitation du symptôme à la figurabilité des rêves. Creuser ce sillon en maniant le trait de dessin comme une massue, fut l’enjeu de la série De quoi rêvent les martyrs ? réalisée […]

Un sourire timide, contrastant avec le regard vif et acéré du grand observateur qu’il est. Lui c’est Nidhal Chamekh, un artiste plasticien, né en 1985, qui vit et travaille entre Paris et Tunis.
Il archive, décortique, dissèque à la manière de dessins scientifiques l’histoire contemporaine et des bouts de réalité.
Nidhal Chemekh’s visual art has often been described as unsettling. His artistic exploration unfolds around complex and fragmented shapes whose meaning is often blurred, almost absent. His designs evolve in accidents, without a predetermined logic that binds one form to another.
Il s’appelle Nidhal Chamekh et c’est un jeune peintre tunisien de 25 ans. Installé en France, depuis deux ans, pour des études doctorales, voilà qu’il commence, déjà, à s’imposer dans la ville des lumières, Paris.
