Nasreddine Bennacer

Biography

Nasreddine Bennacer (born in 1967) in Algiers has been living and working in Paris for  the last twenty years.

The artist tackles profound questions on the evolution of links between civilizations and cultures. He also looks deeply at the ambiguity that exists in human relationships and interaction.

This exploration focuses on the forms of manipulation and exploitation of conflicts, either for the individual or at a more global scale: Is the aggressor always the one demonstrating power or influence, or do either political and economic forces interfere through sentiment and the intellect, creating tensions between an ideology and its realization? 

 

Nasreddine Bennacer experiments with and mixes different techniques and media: ranging from drawing to sculpture, painting on plexiglas to installations, depending on which medium is best attuned to his thinking. The impact of his work relies on observations delivered in an instinctive and trenchant style. His work derives from complex and disarming situations, sometimes tinged with violence. Behind a scrupulous and often poetic aesthetic, the artist denounces a world increasingly hostage to manipulation and rationalisation.
