Curatorial statement’s extract: “As far as we are concerned, are our artists the creative protagonists of their society and their time? Should they be considered uncommon citizens? I understand the desire to present the Algerian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale as a chance to illuminate our artists in center stage, in the spotlight, because they can lend an impetus so sorely missed over these last years. They are our avant-garde, our light makers. They are acting with this genius process of resilience, beings who bring the glow to make us shine again in the darkness of the existential emptiness. It is high time for us to sparkle with our light.”
