Photographer, painter, ceramist, curator…Meriem Bouderbala was trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence and at the Chelsea Art School in London. She lives and works in Tunis. It is in her double origin and double culture – French and Tunisian – that she draws her creative inspiration. Her sensitivity is marked by this weaving of cultural and affective links with the Mediterranean. She chose to work in-between and to set a lucid and critical look on these two shores that history has, in turn, brought closer and kept apart.
Laureate of the Fondation Ricard Price in 1998 and of the Centenaire de Michelin in 1999, she has been decorated in 2010 as Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture.
