Raja Aissa

Tunis : 13 April 2014 - 31 May 2014

Press Release

From April 13 to May 30, 2014, Selma Feriani Gallery hosts a solo exhibition of artist Raja Aissa.

Raja Aissa graduated from the Tunisian Institute of Arts, Architecture and Urbanism and from the Pratt Institute in New York. She lives and works in Paris and Tunis. Her works figure up among the collections of Fondation Cartier in France and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Tunis. They explore the concept of identity and the psychological mechanisms developed in response to globalization and the rise of fundamentalism. Through mixed techniques characterized by an interplay between reflection and superposition, the artist proposes a conceptually rich and visually diverse experience, often tinted with humour and taunting.

This exhibition brings together recent works by the artist that question through the mirror, self-representation and its relationship with the “visible” and the “invisible” in the identity process.
