Repos à nos magiques

80 pages


Born in Bondy in 1996, Neïla Czermak Ichti lives and works in Marseille.

Her work moves between fiction and personal narrative. Her depictions of seemingly banal, everyday scenes take on hidden, magical and invisible dimensions.
In her drawings and paintings, she depicts the people in her life, be they family, friends, creatures from ancestral beliefs, or horrific and fantastic films. In her work, the monsters and hybrid beings that populate her universe act as protective figures, symbols of transitions and the unspoken. Neïla deals with inner journeys, solitude, stories and traumas handed down from generation to generation.

A text by Neïla Czermak Ichti, entitled Homage and Peace to Bolaji Badejo, is also published in this book.
