Born in 1973 in Tunis, Sonia Kallel is a visual artist and Assistant Professor at the National School of Architecture and Urbanism. After settling in France, she decided to return to Tunisia in 2005, where she divides her time between her artistic practice and teaching.
Since 2010, she has been interested in disappearing or endangered artisanal know-how. Her projects always begin with encounters and revolve around narratives, interviews, and inquiries into the consequences of heritage, and social and economic changes… Her works take various forms: installations in historically charged places, woven, deconstructed, and recomposed paths, imbued with testimonies, sounds, and videos, sometimes offering immersion in authentic or reconstructed environments.
Her works have been exhibited in France, Tunisia, and internationally.
