Katia Kameli


Katia Kameli is a French-Algerian artist. Kameli’s work is closely related to her personal experience of dual identities, exploring multiplicity and the ‘in-between’. Through video, photography, installation and drawing, she investigates intercultural spaces, intersecting identities and their construction. Thus, it is possible to use the emergence of other visions, forms and positions. This ‘third space’ questions historical accounts and can generate a critical stance that allows the rewriting of history and narratives. Her most recent solo-exhibitions include: What Language Do You Speak Stranger, The Mosaic Rooms, London (2016); Future, Artconnexion, Lille (2016); Taymour Grahne Gallery, New York (2014); 7 Acts of Love in 7 days of Boredom, Transpalette, Bourges (2012); Duty Free, Videochroniques, Marseille (2012). She has participated in numerous groups that include: Friends, Center Pompidou, Paris (2016); Made in Algeria, Mucem, Marseille (2016); Entry Prohibited to Foreigners, Havre Magasinet, Boden, Sweden (2015); Where we’re at, Bozar, Brussels (2014); Lubumbashi Biennale, Congo (2013); For a Sustainable World, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Portugal (2013); The Bridge, Museum of Marseille (2013); Dak’art, Dakar Biennale (2012); Higher Atlas, Marrakech Biennale (2012); And Bamako Biennale, Mali (2011).
