Zineb Sedira

Zineb Sedira (b. 1963, Paris, France) lives and works in London, UK. Sedira initially found inspiration for her work through autobiographical experiences, before expanding into universal ideas of mobility, landscape, intergenerational memory and the idea of motherhood and its transmission in a globalised world. Sedira employs documentary, poetic and lyrical approaches to her work, deploying the use of portraits, installation, photography, film and video and archival research in her expansive practice. She has been selected to represent France at the 2022 Venice Biennale, and will be the first artist of Algerian descent to do so. Recent exhibitions include Jeu de Paume, France (2019), Beirut Art Center, Lebanon (2018); Sharjah Art Foundation Art Spaces, UAE (2018) and Art on the Underground, London, UK (2016).
