Moussa Sarr

Born in 1984, in Ajaccio, France. Lives and works in Hyéres, France.

By filming himself performing in a single static shot sequence, Moussa Sarr creates contemporary fables which, although they highlight the social and political question, are never without an abrasive irony. By spatialising poetry, he removes the need for words. Humour, violence and derision are the key features of his work. His oeuvre is also rich in sculptures and photographs in which the the problems liked to his immediate surroundings and relationships are at the base of his preoccupations.
