Culture Now: Katia Kameli

16 Sep 2016

French-Algerian artist Katia Kameli is in conversation with Coline Milliard on the occasion of her first solo exhibition at The Mosaic Rooms, What Language Do You Speak Stranger? (16 Sep – 3 Dec 2016).

Working in video, photography, installation and drawing, Kameli is interested in intersecting identities and their construction, and examining intercultural spaces. The pair discuss her practice as well as The Mosaic Rooms’ exhibition,  which draws together both new and recent work, and takes the audience on a journey through the power of storytelling, questioning ideas of historical authenticity and national identity.

Katia Kameli’s work has gained recognition on the international artistic and cinematographic scene. Her most recent solo exhibitions include: Taymour Grahne Gallery, New York (2014); 7 Acts of Love in 7 days of Boredom, Transpalette, Bourges (2012); and Duty Free, Videochroniques, Marseille (2012). Recent group exhibitions include: Where we’re at, Bozar, Bruxelles (2014); Lubumbashi Biennale, Congo (2013); Pour un Monde Durable, Gulbekian, Portugal (2013); Le Pont, Museum of Marseille (2013); Dak’art, Dakar Biennale (2012); Higher Atlas, Marrakech Biennale (2012); and Bamako Biennale, Mali (2011).

Coline Milliard is Associate Director of Carroll/Fletcher, working with a roster of artists including Constant Dullaart, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme, and Richard T. Walker. As an art critic, journalist and editor, she has published extensively in periodicals including Modern Painters, Art Monthly, The International Herald Tribune, Art Review, Metropolis M and Art in America, and contributed essays in books and exhibition catalogues.
