his major solo exhibition by Zineb Sedira, developed in collaboration with De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, will be her first project in UK public galleries for 12 years.

Working across photography, installation and film, Sedira draws upon her personal history and close connection to Algeria, France and the UK to explore ideas of identity, mobility, gender, environment and collective memory.

Throughout her career, Sedira has become a leading voice in addressing the question of what it means to live between different cultures, often bringing together autobiographical narration, fiction and documentary genres. This exhibition will focus on her ongoing investigation into the conditions of transnational trade, identity and migrant consciousness, within which the sea is a recurring motif.
