Safa Attyaoui is a visual artist and curator in training at TASAWAR 2020.
A multidisciplinary artist, she moves from drawing lines to sewing thread and from collage to video while creating a subtle link between her transitions. Attentive to material encounters, she explores textures and recovers objects that she then reintegrates into her work, creating a particular atmosphere where the history of the materials is linked to her personal history.
Since 2017 , she participated in several exhibitions and residencies during which she had the opportunity to further explore drawing and embroidery as a narrative tool to reveal emotional sensitivity in personal life experiences. She has since developed a personal artistic research that revolves around memory and trace. In March 2020 her first solo exhibition “revealing lines” took place in the Chapel of Saint Monique at the IHEC in Carthage.
Recently, she was able to benefit from a grant from the Kamel Lazaar Foundation and ministry of culture for the production of her first animated short movie (Usures) available on the platform Artify and exhibited at B7L9.
In parallel with these participations, she had few experiences as a trainee-videographer, artist assistant and workshop leader in festivals and other events (international festival of feminist art Chouftouhonna, Biennial of contemporary art Dream city) and by occupying the position of gallery assistant at Ghaya gallery in Sidi Bousaïd.
