Born in Constantine, Algeria, Adel Abdessemed has established himself as a prominent figure on the contemporary art scene. Across a wide range of media, including drawing, video, photography, performance, and sculpture, he transforms everyday materials and images into unexpected and charged artistic declarations. Pulling freely from myriad sources—personal, social, and political—his visual language is simultaneously rich and direct, sensitive and controversial, radical and mundane. Abdessemed’s art addresses the underlying effects of globalized society on the individual, often using his own personal circumstances as a point of departure.
