Nadia Guerroui (b. 1988) creates poetic-abstract works in which she explores everyday phenomena and concepts from our complex, contemporary world. An intense reflection process and experiments with unconventional materials are at the basis of her creation process. The dialogue that her work brings about with the observer and the space, and the well-considered choice of materials, textures and shapes link Guerroui’s work to minimalism. Her works are able to transcend the personal, the anecdotal and as a result layers of meaning and imagination are given free play.

She obtained a Master in Textile Design from La Cambre, Brussels. In 2014 she was selected for Coming People, S.M.A.K. Ghent and her work was exhibited in CAB Art Center, Brussels. Her recent solo exhibitions include Palimpsest (Art Institute Shibukawa Gallery, Shibukawa, Japan, 2018), Blink (DAC, Dolceaqua, Italy, 2017) and Impostor Syndrom (SNAP Projects Gallery, Lyon, France, 2016).
