Description for the presentation 2012-2013 in the National Museum of Modern Art

Politics, religion, social exclusion, identity and love are central themes in the work of Adel Abdessemed, an Algerian artiste of Kabil origin, who has lived in France since 1992. Habibti is a skeleton made of Murano glass that seems to be levitating. The materials are chosen for their intrinsic properties and symbolic connotations: the transparency and fragility of blown glass refer to the inevitability of death while hair symbolizes resistance to disappearance. The title Habibti, which means “my darling” in Arabic, is a reference to the artist’s wife who was the artist’s model for this work.
