Maya Inès Touam

Born 1988 in Paris, France.
Lives and works in Paris, France.
Born to Algerian parents, Maya Inès Touam takes the viewpoint of a granddaughter of immigrants to build her work between the shores of the Mediterranean, putting an identity both intimate and foreign into play. A 2013 graduate of the École des Beaux-arts de Paris, her anthropological and dreamlike experiments are based on various media (photographs, drawings, sculptures, etc.) and personal or symbolic objects. In 2017, she won an award from the Fondation Alliances in Morocco. During a 2021 fellowship at the Fondation H in France, she extended her research to the country’sAfrican diaspora, offering a postcolonial look at immigration.
