Selma Feriani

Selma Feriani Gallery presents recent and new works by Massinissa Selmani

His practice addresses contemporary and political issues through drawings that combine a documentary approach with fictional constructions and animations. Situations that confront, juxtapose and even superposition the elements in a context that has systematically been concealed. Exaggerated and enigmatic scenes, inconceivable to reality, bear witness to the absurdity of human behaviour. He balances depictions between the comical and the tragic and introduces architecture as an instrument of power.
