Sonia Kacem : Night Shift

May 2016 to August 2016

Sonia Kacem, Fine Arts Master alumni 2011, presents Night Shift, a personal exhibition at the Centre d'art contemporain Genève.
Opening Thursday May 19th at 6 30 pm

Night Shift was conceived during her four-month residency at the Centre, and reflects its own architectural format. Objects manufactured in the industrial world and the matter – retrieved or rented for the occasion – are here taken out of context, deprived of their artifact status, grouped and staged in provisional situations echoing the two very distinct spaces intended to receive them: the open space of the second floor, with its natural light, evoking a horizon versus the fragmentation of the closed rooms of the third floor.

Sonia Kacem studied at the Haute école d’art et de design (HEAD) in Geneva and at the CCW Graduate School, University of the Arts in London. Today she lives and works in Geneva. She has had solo exhibitions at, amongst others: Kunsthalle Sankt Gallen; Kunstverein Nürnberg; Galerie Gregor Staiger, Zurich; La Rada, Locarno; T293, Rome. Her work has also been shown in group exhibitions in Europe, including at: Musée d’art moderne et contemporain (Mamco), Geneva Autocenter, Berlin; Miart, Milan; Aanant&Zoo, Berlin; Swiss Art Awards, Basel; Sommer&Kohl, Berlin; Bucharest Biennale 4, Bucharest. Sonia Kacem will also be ‘guest resident’ at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten, Amsterdam between May and November 2016.
