Narmine Sadeg is the artist in residence for both the Villa Arson in Nice and the Center for Advanced Visual Studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Sadeg is also a lecturer of Fine Arts at the University Michel de Montaigne Bordeaux III. Between sculpture, drawing, video and installation, her works explore the notion of foreignness and invisible borders.
These works have been exhibited at various institutions such as: the Galerie Giovanna Minnelli in Paris, Museum & CAVS at MIT, the Contemporary Art Centre of the Villa Arson in Nice, the Basilisk Gallery of Copenhagen, and the Werkstatt Gallery in Berlin. One of Sadeg’s exhibitions includes a surreal and disconcerting 2004 installation ’Office of Diverted Trajectories’, which presents a multimedia interpretation of Attar’s mystical 12th century Persian folk tale, Mantegh Ol-Teyre (The Conference of the Birds).
