Zineb Sedira

In a low-environmental-impact Pavilion, an installation by Algerian photographer and video artist Zineb Sedira (Paris, 1963) is inspired by her personal experience, with an art gaze looking at the general picture and influenced by the friendly cooperation, back in the 1960s, of Algeria, France, and Italy in intellectual and artistic fields, which coincided with the utopian visions of the time.
With her film – which recalls Les mains libres (1964) by Italian director Ennio Lorenzini, the first feature film made in independent Algeria –the artist questions decolonization, identity, racism, acceptance, solidarity, and family.
