Presentation of the artist

Mohamed Bourouissa describes contemporary society implicitly, by its contours. With a critical take on the mass media image, the subjects of his photographs and videos are people left behind at the crossroads of integration and exclusion.

Preceded by a long immersion phase, each of Mohamed Bourouissa’s projects builds a new enunciation situation. Unlike false simplistic media constructions, the artist reintroduces complexity into the representation of the margins of hypervisibility. Kamel Mennour and Mohamed Bourouissa have been working together since 2010.

His work has been exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions, at the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; basis in Frankfurt am Main; Le Bal, Paris; Haus der Kunst, Munich and the FRAC Franche-Comté, Besançon. He participated in the Sharjah, Havana, Lyon, Venice, Algiers, Liverpool and Berlin Biennales and the Milan Triennial.

In 2018, he was nominated for the Marcel Duchamp Prize. In 2017, he was selected for the Pictet prize. His works belong to leading collections, including that of the LACMA, the Stedelijk Museum, the Centre Pompidou, the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Istanbul Modern, and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.
