Artist Profile: Zineb Sedira on Family, the Sea, and her Videos

"Artist Zineb Sedira talks about the development of the videographic aspect of her practice, from documentary-style works dealing with her parents and the Algerian War of Independence, such as "Mother, Father and I," through videos based on her interests in language and oral history, such as "Mother Tongue," and more “filmic,” poetic works featuring maritime imagery, such as "Middle Sea." Sedira describes newer works like "Gardiennes d’images" as fusions of some of her previous approaches."
