This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The work "Mirage V" is part of a series of the same name, recently made by the artist Zoulikha Bouadellah, as a reaction to the events in the Arab world in 2011. Following a well-known process according to which each revolution generates its icons, the artist has found hers on a Mirage aircraft of Kadhafi 's army shot down during flight by the rebel forces. From this pattern, which she simplifies, colors and repeats at her will, the artist has built pieces which seem inspired by Islamic decorative arts. These apparently very decorative and light works quickly reveal their warlike and dramatic connotation.

Biography from Brooklyn Museum:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Zoulikha Bouabdellah (b. 1977) was born in Moscow, Russia. At an early age she moved to Algeria and then to Paris in the 1990's. She earned a Diplome National d'Arts Plastiques in 2000 and a Diplome National Superieur d'Expression Plastique in 2002 from Ecole Nationale Superieure d'Arts de Paris-Clergy. She also studied in a laureate program at the Villa Medicis Hors les Murs in Cape Town through the AFAA (French Association for the Artistic Action) in 2005.

She had a recent solo exhibition at La Lettre Volue in Brussels. She has been included in group shows at such venues as Museum Kunst Palast, Dusseldorf; Hayward Gallery, London; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Centre de Cultura Contemporania, Barcelona; and Iziko South African National Gallery in Cape Town where she completed a three month residency in 2005. Her films have been screened at Saddler's Well and the Tate Modern, both in London. She has also participated in the Biennale of Contemporary African Art in Dakar in 2002 and 2004. She currently lives and works in Aubervilliers, France.

Artist's Feminist Artist Statement
It is very important to me to be part of the Global Feminisms show. The objective of the exhibition is excellent, not only because it shows the creative diversity of females, but also, because "the feminist question" is expressed in each individual piece.

The Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, conceived as a platform for female creativity, inevitably perpetuates female action. This action is informed by the fight for recognition in all areas, especially in creativity.

I think of women such as Louise Bourgeois or Gina Pane, each of whom in their own way, have nourished the ART-FEMME debate. I stand on the side of the deuxième sexe (the second sex), the open-minded sex- the one that challenges the lack of spirituality and morality of its times, the one that redefines things in a perpetual way.
