The associate artists
Artist and publisher, likes to work with friends and collectively. Since her first creations in France, Palestine and Morocco, she has linked collective stories and public space. The books she publishes with Éditions commune, which she founded in 2010, as well as the films of which she is now the “storyteller”, are documented fables whose narrative lines intertwine art and politics, urbanism, and poetry. The storytelling of the archives, whether institutional or personal, she has found or been entrusted with (collections that have been built up over a long period of contact with places or people), plays an essential role.

Lives and works between Marseille and Alexandria.
From a practice of drawing and painting, she develops research based on the experience of geography through the line and the tracing, in which she experiments with various exploratory peregrinations, essentially in the Maghreb and the Mashreq. She develops experimental collaborative projects in atypical places. The most significant of these, Nassim el Raqs, a laboratory festival that questions the body and the artistic gesture in the city of Alexandria, has taken place every spring since 2011.
In 2012, she founded Momkin-espaces de possibles to bring and develop her projects in Marseille.
