Artist Adel Abdessemed at David Zwirner New York

Across a wide range of media, artist Adel Abdessemed transforms well-known materials and imagery into charged artistic declarations. The artist pulls freely from myriad sources–personal, historical, social, and political–to create a visual language that is simultaneously rich and economical, sensitive and controversial, radical and mundane… Born in 1971 in Constantine, Algeria, Adel Abdessemed studied at the École des beaux-arts de Batna and the École des beaux-arts d’Alger, Algiers and the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon. He was an artist-in-residence at the Cité internationale des Arts de Paris in 1999-2000, and the following year at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center’s International Studio Program in Long Island City, New York. He now lives and works in Paris. © Adel Abdessemed, ADAGP Paris 2013 Courtesy the artist and David Zwirner New York/London Current Show: “Le Vase Abominable” February 22 through March 30, 2013 David Zwirner Gallery London W1S 4EZ For more information: www.davidzwirner.com This image: Le Vase abominable, 2012-2013 Previous image: Taxidermy, 2010 Cri, 2013 56 inches Ivory Telle mère tel fils, 2008 27 x 4 x …
