Oussama TABTI

Visual artist Oussama Tabti was born in 1988 in Algiers, where he still lives and works. A graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Algiers, he specialized in Graphic design. In his work he tries to take a contextual position on the various changes and phenomena that have a significant impact on society and the world in which he lives. His attention to news events and reality in general appears in his works shown in several exhibitions: JE Palestine 2009 in Algier, the Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean2009 in Skopje and Traces: performance, video, Artifariti 2010 Festival in the free territories of the Western Sahara.

« Stand-by »: Tabti scanned the back pages of some forty books including the date of borrowing from the library of the French Cultural Centre in Algiers. An interruption of dates between 1994 and 1999 corresponds to a time when the Centre closed its doors during the tragic events that marked the country. It is a testimony on a painful period and its effect on the artistic and cultural life.
