  2. Zineb Sedira, Guiding Light, 2014
    Single screen video projection + a boat (sand object) on a plinth
    6 min 15 sec

    In Guiding Light, the desert is an oceanic journey with narratives of the multifaceted voyages undertaken by young
    African men and women looking for a better life, traveling towards the horizon in search of the vanishing point; a
    spiritual perspective on life and hope.
    The desert and the ocean both represent spaces of desolation – enigmatic, deceptive and dangerous, hidden with
    life; a mirage of paradise. But the immigrants are swallowed up in the dust or sand, in to the vanishing points. The
    sand dunes blown from one place and deposited in another, echo this primal passage.

  3. Zineb Sedira, Transmettre en abyme, 2012 (Part I)
    Three channel video installation
    Part 1: Single Channel, 18 min 13 sec, Format 16:9
    Part 2: Dual Channel, 14 min 18 sec, Format 16:9

    Co-producers: Marseille-Provence 2013 and the Grand Port Maritime de Marseille.

    Preserving and transmitting memories of the past in order to leave a legacy for the future has often been at the core of Zineb Sedira’s work. The three-channel video installation Transmettre en abyme (2012) investigates the ‘Detaille collection’, a living photographic archive of three generations of photographers in Marseille spanning from 1895 to today, in addition to another local photographer’s body of work produced between 1935 and 1985. In 1996, the family archive had been enriched by the acquisition of Marcel Baudelaire's collection of valuable visual testimonies ¬ an obsessive ‘ship spotter’ who compulsively photographed the boats arriving and departing from of the port of Marseille. The amassed images speak of the endless flow of goods and human cargo transported by the vessels Baudelaire depicts.

    Transmettre en abyme is a unique record in its own right of an artist who is herself a photographer and collector of memories. Zineb visually unveils the methods of documentation, counting, ordering and classification. The installation draws attention to the contribution of little known photographers to the local history of photography of Marseille. It is also pays homage to dedicated ‘image keepers’ and archivists, such as Hélène Detaille, who have formed, and are preserving, cultural memories for future generations.
