    2, place du Saf Saf, La Marsa, Tunis

    Elmarsa is pleased to present Atef Maatallah’s third solo exhibition in Tunis S'hab / S'mè, in collaboration with guest artists Alaeddine Slim and Maher Habib Gnaoui, an account on the personal experience of confinement shared by the three artists. The result is a dynamic visual display representing the conceptual psychological and material connections forged among them ranging from painting to installation. This biographical exhibition gives voice to Maatallah’s drawings and paintings in conversation with Slim’s and Gnaoui’s video, photography and installation works through intimate stories and subverting narratives on the idea of captivity and the effects of power and authority over freedom, identity, religion and sexuality. A critical standpoint of the country’s new democracy that yielded no true freedom, instead recognising a familiar sense of alienation in Tunisia’s complex realities.

    The artist Atef Maatallah will be in conversation with Catherine David, curator and deputy director at the Musée National d'Art Moderne - George Pompidou, Paris, on Sunday, May 14th at 1:30 AM.
