|A Brief Moment|
Zineb Sedira‘s solo exhibition A Brief Moment opens at Jeu de Paume on 15 October in Paris. The exhibition spans twenty-one years of Zineb’s artistic career and includes video, film, installation and photography.
The title of the exhibition mirrors the consciousness of time that is depicted in Zineb’s works as several installations in this exhibition are based on her specific interest in collecting, recording and transmitting histories. The evolution of the form, function and impact of images in societies worldwide are evidently part of Zineb’s observation when dealing with archive material. Although Zineb’s work has often been largely identified with postcolonial issues and in particular with her family history, closely linked to Algeria, A brief moment also highlights the manner in which she explores the exponential devastation of the environment through over-production, universal circulation of people and goods.
Opening: 15 October
