Zoulikha Bouabdellah grew up in Algiers, moving in 1993 to France. Her installations, video, or drawings question icons, dominant representations, motifs and ornaments by juxtaposing them to geopolitical dynamics and global issues linked to conflicts, sexuality, or the status of women. This deconstruction of views operates with a reflexion upon culture, production, and industrialisation. She has been awarded the Abraaj Capital Art Prize, the Prix Meurice pour l'Art Contemporain, and the Villa Medicis Hors les Murs. Her works are part of public and private collections in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, China, and the United States.
