Exhibition: "Becoming Independent" at the Royal Hibernian Academy

JPEG As part of Ireland’s 2013 EU Presidency Cultural Programme the Cultural Service of the French Embassy and the Institut Français are proud to support the participation of artists Zineb Sedira & Amina Menia to this exhibition.

Curated by Caroline Hancock, these artists create their individual installations to deal with the fragility of history and identity. Working in the context of contemporary Algeria each identifies a specific loss or disappearance of material culture that will impoverish the formulating and understanding of societal growth.

Zineb Sedira was born in France of Algerian parents. Her videos and photographs often inspired by her family stories or made in Algeria are exhibited worldwide to great acclaim.

Amina Menia is based in Algiers. She has an incisive fascination for art and life in the public sphere and the possibilities or incongruities of the urban environment.
