Selma Feraini Gallery present Massinissa Selman - On A Rock, A Brief Circle Of Sun
Wed-Sat: 10-6pm; Sun: 12-4pm
In a presentation tied together by contemporary art curator and writer Roger Malbert, Selmani creates enigmatic, ambiguous scenes that bear witness to the absurdity of human behaviours.
Selmani's work aims to create drawn forms mingling a documentary approach with fictional constructions and animations, while taking as its point of departure contemporary political and social issues from press cuttings.
Through confrontation, juxtaposition and even the superposition of actual elements, whose contexts have systematically been concealed, the artist creates enigmatic, ambiguous scenes unlikely to happen in reality, bearing witness to the absurdity of human behaviours and always balances these depictions within the realms of the comical and the tragic, or architecture as an instrument of power.
