Type: A collective exhibition.

summary: Can we have order in disorder, and chaos in organization ?
Following the Covid 19 pandemic, disorder is taking hold everywhere in our daily life. Such a disorder is followed by instability, turmoil and agitation in all forms of regularization of the personal and collective life : A disorganization, which is imposed on the daily life, is forced by a social fragmentation. It is also forced by an atmosphere that is far from the orderly mind and from everything responding to the image of stability and regularity which is supposed to be based on constant truths and determining objectives. By focusing passionately on the two terms order / disorder that are supposed to be paradoxical at the lexical level, we recognize that such a contradiction reveals a complementarity and a combinatory coherence between, two worlds, two phenomenal universes. Order / disorder are mixed, woven… .

"Sexism/ Pink October"

Date: 10-10-2020 → 31-10-2020.
Type: A collective exhibition (Pink October).
Nature: Four reworked "performative" photographs.
Local: The ESDAC gallery in Aix en Provence / France.
Links / Photos: You will find all the photos on"Pinterest", as well as a link on "Vimeo".
Summary: I have chosen to present for the exhibition "Pink October" a series of works called "Battle". They are taken from my video when "I leave my cocoon". I have tried to highlight the idea of sexism through a personal experience told in 4 stages survived and alternated between postponement and determination, confronting also moments of reluctancy. It is about an inner conflict, but it is also external. It is made of suspicion ; the fear of expressing oneself. However, it is made of courage as well, of the desire to communicate. It was based on a code; the color in the realization of my works (black and red). The general idea of my work here is to represent the status of the woman, whatever her origins, in a common way. But I am focusing especially on the women that have somehow difficulties in expressing their feelings. My works can be read and interpreted in different ways. Every way can be appropriated to a specific idea. Such a conflict can be for example an experience of life to resist a serious disease in order to survive. It can be also a way to overcome a harassment, rape, and a story of pedophilia or abuse. I think that everyone can recall a part of his / her story of life through my artworks.

"Silk / Self"

Date: 23-06-2020 → 01-08-2020.
Type: A collective exhibition, the subject of the exhibition is "deconfined art".
Nature: Painting on silk / Recovery / Embroidery.
Local: The ESDAC gallery in Aix en Provence / France.
Links / Photos: You will find the photo on "Pinterest", as well as a link is available on "Vimeo" .
Summary: The subject of deconfined art has touched me a lot. It came simultaneously with a personal experience, a story that has begun even before the confinement. I had to say that all my achievements are the fruits of personal experiences, at times able to be shared in public and at others not able to be shared. Before the confinement i was eager to work on sexism, the discrimininatory attitude that I have faced during my career, and on the difficulties that feminist female artists face in their projects. Some people unfortunately hate / reject women that have a revolutionary spirit. The confinement time was very important in my life as an artist, it is even crucial for me. Actually i have detached from this world to create my small universe and my confidential bubble, and especially to make decisions. My decision was to retrace my path, to self-assess, to revise certain choices, certain objectives, to review my ambitions and even the values that i have long carried and that have become nowadays constraining defects (such as spontaneity, honesty, and sincerity…) In brief, it was then that i started this work; painting on silk. The material is therefore silk, the choice of an artist that aims to achieve an artistic intention. In fact, to achieve my objective, I opted for a very soft fragile material, and even so delicate. My choice of silk is due to the sensitive time of confinement that the entire world was compelled to live. At the level of composition, the work on silk represents many possible ways concerning life; such as work / my personal life / health and they sometimes overlap. Concerning work, my will to embark on the world of programming is like a challenge for success. At the level of personal life, I have appreciated a lot the people who have been present during the difficult moments, and then as well i have eliminated the ones who have been passive / indifferent with me. In terms of health, this work was a therapy considering that before the confinement i was hospitalized for around ten days due to an anguish because of certain aggressive reactions towards me. In this artwork, buttons are revealing, (here i am using a play on words ; button / bachelor’s button), it is before that they bloom, they affect me such as the moments of reflexion and contemplation that i do from time to time to review matters. In my case, it is easier to paste these buttons. However, i wanted to fix them one by one in order to give them a value thanks to a manual technique, that of weaving. I focus on the word "weaving", the technique that aims to weave / regenerate contacts and promote connectivity with certain people. Finally if i do a chromatic analysis for my work, i would say that the choice of cheerful, lively colors, full of vitality, contrasts with the black traces and shows a gap between dream and reality. So to sum up, the confinement period was very interesting for me.It was a rest, in my life as an artist, that allowed me to see things better, to orient myself towards other objectives, to see / re-examine the world from another angle. In short it is about bringing back order to my life. This period of segregation gave me strength, a push forwards to overcome all the difficulties and therefore to be optimistic.

"The lie in the performative digital videos "

Date: 10-01-2020 → 31-01-2020.
Type: A collective exhibition.
Nature: A projection of my performative videos "Facing the mirror" and "Invasion of space".
Local: To Borj Kallel - in collaboration with the Association of friends to fine arts (A.A.A.P) - Sfax / Tunisia.
Links / Photos: The link is available on "Vimeo", as well as "the certificate" of my participation and all of my photos taken during my exposition on "Pinterest".
Summary: Digital art and the use of editing softwares give a new conception of a visible image that is sometimes not legible in the context. Digital art is likely to convince the receiver by giving him the impression to think about another thing without acknowledging the real reason behind the achievement of a performative demonstration. Questioning the digital misleading appearance is a way to fake the truth that submerges in lies. We cannot be contented in describing this truth, so we just transcend it. It is a spatio-temporal transcendence, that is the internal space open on other spaces and dimensions. It is plunging the reality in a spiritual substance. The distancing between the truth and the lie is narrow to reveal what is beyond sensibility, a union between revelation and illusion. Lying is to escape, to refuge to an imaginary world, an artificial universe that let us dream. It is an ornamentation, a cluster between sensibility and virtual world. It is also an extension of truth by a play on images. It is a theatricalization of the past that is buried in the imaginary world.

"The deadly desire"

Date: 20-02-2019 → 31-01-2020.
Type: A collective exhibition.
Nature: Painting / Recovery: Flowers and light.
Local: At the Saint-Pierre chapel - City of Saint-Chamas / France.
Links / Photos: You will find the photo on"Pinterest" , as well as a link is available on "Vimeo".
Summary: Is it possible to everyone of us to achieve all of his/her desires, his/her dreams, and to actualize them ? I don’t think so ! There are desires or perhaps one desire that will remain buried in us, and that can never be revealed, exteriorized and given to birth… It will never see the light. It keeps enclosed and confined in the darkness. In fact, we cannot reveal everything. So, we will keep very personal things forever in our memory.

"Scar"

Date: 30-08-2019.
Type: A bodily performance.
Nature: A performance with personal choreography.
Local: At the Montparnasse gallery - Paris / France.
Links / Photos: You will find all the photos on"Pinterst", as well as a link is available on "Vimeo" .
Summary: It is not merely a corporal determination, but rather a reality that called into question a truth. It is not a concised instant conceptual image, it is rather a cautious presentation. It is an appropriated image that gives the impression of an instant reality of the act. It is a feeling of a paradox between the fragmentation and the continuity of time...The improvization is normally considered as an ephemeral act, but in reality it is an act that allows us to immerse in the unconscious... Improvising is such an intellectual work based on memory. If we talk about improvisation, we are supposed to stimulate the spontaneity of acts. However, the term total spontaneity does not exist in theory; nobody is able to let go, we generally end by supervising our acts and our speeches. So it is a partial abscence of spontaneity...an arrangement of multiple, spatial, temporal and variable information. It is a voluntary interruption specified with continuity and discontinuity in an artistic web / temporal complex... The improvisation is not necessarily based on the briefness of acts; it gives the impression to receivers that certain emotions are instant; immediate feelings. The performance pretends to reveal the total truth, but in reality it is a way to seek out lost individuality...

Summary: : The image of a woman constrained, suffocating in silence, locked in on herself. The Chrysalis is a small imaginary world that she created in her detachment. This cocoon is a shelter that protects her from the outside, from fear. However, she is always searching for connectivity. Such a link with the other represents a thread to go out of her confinement. The red thread is an intangible thread of fate that links this cocoon to the exterior ball. It is like a spiritual link between her and some people. Such a link of spirit is a source of accomplishment. It transmits a magical energy, a « Great Bliss »,…hard to attain.

Summary: The general idea of my works: My body becomes a thread leader that draws my interiority in the external space. Veiled / Unveiled is an inner conflict situation, a tension between a feeling of curiosity and that of caution. My feeling of inner revolt-which I had to express-is a moment of full awareness, it crystallizes in those actions that I needed to do at certain times in my life. This experience of contiguity actually stems from the continuity of the thread. In this inner and fusional space, i experience my body in relation to the continuous thread, and it often takes on an imaginary dimension, to which is added a real external space, that of representation and distancing in the physical world of my work. A form of verticality is then established but it is going from "me to me", yet circular and linked to me, between my mind and my heart, but there is still a form of horizontality, a kind of dialogue with others, with the surrounding world. My image of seeing through the cocoon (performative video: "the exit of my cocoon") is a disclosure ; it symblolizes the idea of opening onto another space. It is a kind of entry with memory, towards the idea of transcendence and escape to a new world.

Summary: The notion of shadow that I adopted in my mini sculptures, symbolizes the idea of ​​opening up to another space, another world. The passage of the being, of the soul, of the spirit towards the beyond. like a spiritual escape from a material world to an immaterial hereafter. The shadow is for me a form of door towards others. A form of openness for meetings and exchanges but in two particular worlds both distant and contiguous. When I face my sculptures and observe their shadows, I feel like a traveller, i have the inner sensation, and weird that this journey breaks all the barriers physically installed around my body.
