Adel Abdessemed is an Algerian-born conceptual artist who works across a range of media, transforming everyday materials and images into charged pieces of art. Adel embraces video, sculpture, performance, painting and drawing to create works that comment on violence and the effect of globalised society on the individual. We love the power of Adel’s pieces, be they big or small, elaborate or simple: all have a message to convey and they do so…Show more with gusto.
After studying for a time in Algiers, the artist traveled to France to attend the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Lyon. He worked for a time as a resident artist in New York before settling in Paris.
Adel has exhibited work in London, Vienna, Brussels and Tel Aviv. His installation called ‘Nymphéas’, or Waterlilies, featured prominently at the 2015 Venice Biennale.Show less
