I was born in the heart of the white city,Algiers, along with my passion for the arts. Conceptual artist, I remain sensitive to all forms of expression. The people and Algiers are my inspirations. I walk, I pace and I dream every day in the streets of my city, I draw inspiration from them and I nourish my works from them. I see life everywhere: in the static and in the dynamic.
2006 was pivotal! I change jobs and my story with Image begins. Today, I make images and I reveal myself through them, beyond being a job, director has become a new passion.
My desire for art that animates images also wanted to freeze them in time, because in a society where everything moves quickly, it is important to know how to stop and contemplate and challenge. Through my photographs I captivate, through my reinterpretation sculptures and through my installations I question fragments of life.
I participed to serveral festivals, art exhibitions, workshops and art résidencies . I use different mediums in my work : photography, video, sculpture, installations .
