Biography

Intissar Belaid, visual artist and filmmaker, born in 1984 in Kef (Tunisia), lives and works in Tunis where she participates regularly in group and individual exhibitions.
After graduating from the Higher Institute of Fine Arts in Nabeul in 2006(l’Institut Supérieur des Beaux Arts de Nabeul – ISBAN),she studied at the Film School of Tunis(École Supérieure de l’Audiovisuel et du Cinéma à Gammarth) until 2009. In 2012, she obtained a master’s degree in film research at the Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris.

Videographer, photographer, or embroiderer, Intissar Belaid explores several techniques to question a generation over their collective and individual memory in a current socio-political context.

The empty gaze, the deafening speech, we can no longer follow.
The images scroll, follow one another, record themselves and disappear to the rhythm of events. What do we remember? Maybe a forgotten shock? A mitigated position? or a mute question?
The artist, Intissar Belaid, offers us an intersectional look of a Real and its imaginary counterpart. Images engraved in our heads yet ruminated in this Real, she recomposes the absurd elements that have contributed to its formation and she inserts slices of the documentary in the plot of fiction. This thread, which will no longer leave this traumatized weave, redraws, through the transparency of an erased memory, what remains of an event, a time, a story …
