Amel Ben Attia

Here and there

“This is a creation of overlapping genres, like a topology of nodes that we lift one by one. The bell of this video/ sound stream, tolls when questioning and reconsidering norms and values: No one can ever claim himself to be the guarantor of social stability, or security. No structure could ever spare us from living the horror often too trivialized by its recurrence, by the media, and by our perception.
A generalized image, “too aestheticized”. Intrigue and mystery follow each other during the participative work of Amel Ben Attia, where she traps the spectator during the experiment, by first putting him face to face with the image, then into the image and beyond Image while pushing him to create a mirror or echo effect.
The artist reminds us that the art work must disturb and provoke, so one can realize that the ultimate urgency is only: the urgency to live!”
