Kader Attia - Menottes


Kader Attia

Born in 1970 in Dugny (France)

The work of Kader Attia can be described as consisting in a symbolic exploration of the traumas and fears of his own childhood.
He proclaims the plurality of his cultural backgrounds: pop culture and “cultured” culture, the street culture of the housing estates outside of Paris, and his own childhood identity.
While each new series employs different materials, symbols and scale, Attia’s practice continually returns to a sustained look at the poetic dimensions and complexities of contemporary life.and complexities of contemporary life. and complexities of contemporary life.
