Tiemar Tegene was born in 1985 in Addis Ababa Ethiopia. She received a BFA in print making at AAU Alle school of fine Art and design university in 2009 E.C. She is a full time studio artist and has exhibited her works in different group exhibitions locally and participated in workshops that highly focused on print making. She use different techniques but most of the time etching.
She is interested in the boundaries that exist within human beings: those that exist naturally within each person and those that are constructed by oneself. She is interested in the use of these boundaries as a tool of control and power. For Tegene, the denial of human tragedies occurring in the world does not escape the collective unconscious. On the contrary, according to her subliminally, atrocities such as torture, poverty, injustice cast shadows on our comfort zones.
The people who appear in her works are nameless; they are tributes to the "disappeared", the "rejected", those who are considered "collateral damage", the "disenfranchised"; they are "figures", "victims", "statistics". They also evoke "compassion".Read more
Versant Sud is an artist's residency whose main mission is to develop artistic and cultural projects in two territories: the Southern region of France and African countries.
The two geographical areas have one thing in common: they are territories marked by the virtual absence of an art market. Artists developing their activity in these two areas face buyers who are still under-represented or buying outside the territory.
To promote these two territories, Versant Sud is deployed on several axes:
The organization of an annual cross-artistic residency program between Marseille (France) and an African capital; coordination of artistic and cultural projects for other structures and/or institutions; design-oriented training workshops for art schools, the proposal for conferences focusing on the African perspective, selling works of art created by the artist in residence.
The launch season 2018 / 2019 of the artistic residencies is dedicated to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. In October 2019, Versant Sud attended the leading fair dedicated to contemporary African Art - 1.54 Contemporary African Art Fair - in London and presented works from Leikun Nahusenay.
