Maïmouna Patrizia Guerresi is a photographer, sculptor, and video and installation artist. Her work originates from conceptual experimentations inspired by the 1970s Body Art. In 1991 Maïmouna travelled to various Muslim African countries and converted to Islam. This marked her new identify and the direction in her work, adopted in the name Maïmouna, with recurring themes about multicultural symbolism and feminine spirituality.
Since then, Maïmouna's work has been exhibited widely in Europe, America and more recently, the Middle East. Her solo show at Tasveer, 'Inner Space' will constitute Maïmouna's first exhibition in India, for which she has created a special body of work which draws on themes from her previous projects, whilst reinterpreting these in an distinctly Indian context.
