Working across a wide range of different media, including sculpture, installation, video, photography and drawing, Abdessemed passionately tackles difficult subject matter and taboos within society and presents them as naked truth. Beyond their often challenging and provocative appearance, his works embody the fragility of life and are deeply imbued with beauty and poetry.
