Slimen Elkamel is an artist and art critic, holding a master’s in painting and a PhD from the Institut Supérieur des Beaux-Arts de Tunis. The rural surroundings of his youth proved formative to his practice, and it was in Sidi Bouzid, amongst the long-standing traditions of folk tales and poetry that his preoccupation with lived and virtual reality was sown. More recent works explore the social and communicative parameters of our ‘reality complex’. Elkamel considers the ways in which these multiple ‘realities’ hinge upon visual and auditory channels of communication. His works have been widely exhibited in international forums and he has undertaken residencies at the Living Arts Center, Rades, Tunisia, among others. Selected exhibitions include NOW, a two-person exhibition with Neill Wright, Sulger-Buel Lovell, London (2017) and Yesterday is tomorrow’s memory: a group show of work from North Africa, Elmarsa, Dubai (2016).
