Born in 1975 in Mazamet (France), Abdelkader Benchamma lives and works in Paris and Montpellier.
Benchamma chooses to work in a sole medium: black and white drawings. He adopts different approaches to the drawing process, sometimes moving across a sheet of paper with the meticulous strokes of an engraver, sometimes spreading over a wall with lavish gestures that appropriate the space. The matter escapes from the frame in a form of organic growth. Inspired by literature, philosophy, astrophysics and esoteric reflections, his works create visual scenarios that question our relationship to reality as they probe the frontiers of the invisible.
UN AUTRE MONDE///DANS NOTRE MONDE - Group show
UN AUTRE MONDE///DANS NOTRE MONDE is questioning our relationship with the real world through many sectors of creation and knowledge, on the frontiers of science, tradition, fantasy, sciencefiction and ultimately of the real. UN AUTRE MONDE///DANS NOTRE MONDE is a hybrid event between the itinerant collective exhibition, the symposium and the epistemological experimental laboratory.
