Additional Information (Publicly available):

Mohamed Bourouissa was born in 1978 in Blida, Algeria. He lives and works in Paris. In 2006 Bourouissa graduated from École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs. The same year he started his long-term project, Périphéries, that focused on the suburbs of Paris. He quickly gained recognition for his filmic photographs – carefully staged studies of the tension and power relations afflicting young people in the suburbs. The imagined scenarios explore the social and economic issues of the area in which the artist grew up, while questioning stereotypes about life in the suburban territories of Paris.

His work has been exhibited in France, Galerie du Château d’Eau, Toulouse, Cité de L’Immigration, Paris, and at the Finnish Museum of Photography, 2009; FotoRio, Rio de Janeiro, 2009; New Museum, New York, 2009 and he was represented the same year at the Bamako Encounters, Mali.

He is currently an artist-in-residence at the Studio National des Arts Contemporains in Le Fresnoy, where he has enlarged his artistic practice to film-making and video, as well as other plastic media such as sculpture.

In 2010 Mohamed Bourouissa will participate in several important artistic events; The Berlin Biennial and The Brighton Biennial. He will be part of the group exhibition Dynasty at the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, the Palais de Tokyo and have his first solo exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery in New York
