Nadia Kaabi-Linke In an Interview with Another Africa

Clelia Coussonnet, Another Africa, August 31, 2016

Clelia Coussonnet interviews Nadia Kaabi-Linke for Another Africa,  delving into her artistic practice to understand how Kaabi-Linke examines "the manifold undercurrents of society."


Coussonnet continues: "Her approach somehow mimics scientific techniques; her research process is formal, painstaking, and meticulous, even mechanical at times. As indexers, she collects samples, dissects facts, rummages through layers, and analyses the results compiled. The resemblance to scientists ends there; once materials are gathered, she does not pursue further research in the rational field, but rather transfigures her observations and transposes them into a poetic and aesthetic universe of its own."
