Maïmouna Patrizia Guerresi, The Giants Series, 2007-2009
Maïmouna Guerresi is a photographer, sculptor, and video and installation artist. Her work offers an exploration of Muslim identity and spirituality. In 1991 Maïmouna converted to Islam after traveling to various Muslim African countries.
Her work is inspired by personal experience and cultural contexts that reference universal myths, the sacred realm, and the female condition, all of which are seen as vital expressions of the human form: an essentially spiritual and mystic body.
