Núria Gregori. El temps de les arts


Zineb Sedira
Gallery 7. IVAM. 2019

It is the splintered ships sinking in methacrylate by Zineb Sedira what comes to my mind these days. IVAM closed this exhibition a few months ago. French-born Algerian artist showed a series of poetic works with which she tried to rebuild her personal story and that of her family. This is an artistic self-exploration exercise which also narrates part of the contemporary history of Europe: splintered shipwrecks sinking in methacrylate; desert sand threatening to cover us at a slow but steady pace; ruined buildings from a not-too-distant colonial past and a family story as the only thread for each of our stories to hang from.
