ISBN: 9782370741653 Category:


The art of Slimen Elkamel (born 1983 in Mazouna, Tunisia) is made of popular narrative and the rural imagination that has been with the artist since his childhood. By crystallizing this literary and intellectual heritage imbued with the tradition of storytelling and popular poetry, the artist distinguishes himself by an artistic practice which is based above all on the regular exercise of writing. Indeed, Slimen Elkamel creates alternately poetic and literary texts, of his memory or his invention, which deeply nourish his visual universe. The interaction between writing and painting then generates a colorful and abundant work where the multiple references to reality do not prevent the blossoming of an unbounded imagination.
