Katia Kameli (Clermont-Ferrand, 1973) lives and works in Paris.
Strengthened by a double French and Algerian culture, she acts as a bridge between different territories and questions the obscure spots of History.
Following her own paths, she connects distant facts, reties loose bonds, gives voice to silenced words to write counter-narratives.
Her research melts, intertwines and weaves together a multiplicity of perspectives.
At the intersection of poetic languages, visual studies and craft techniques, her artistic practice is the result of a great work of accumulation of relationships through affinity, proximities and friendships.
