About Kader Attia

French-Algerian artist Kader Attia began his practice with photography before moving to collage, sculpture, and large-scale installation. His work does not conform to one visual aesthetic but is informed by his concept of “repair,” which he sees as a way to explore Western and non-Western approaches to history and politics in terms of a constant restitching of cultural identity. His philosophical, research-based installations draw on themes of architecture, the body, and religion, often employing postcolonial references within museological modes of display.

French, b. 1970, Dugny, France
