You have to be a nomad, crossing ideas the way nomads cross the Sahara desert, with no idea of time and space. Desert people are simple, humble.Their past is in the dust. Each move they make is precious, charged with meaning. I am awed by all of this: it leads my eye beyond the formal appearance of the objects that fill up our lives.My original cultural influence is Algiers, its local artisans and those of its casbah, its traditional architecture with grates, studded doors and moucharabiehs... It is also the south. A great many small details have left their mark on me and enriched me, giving me force. My original culture enables me to bring a personal touch to my second culture.The question remains as to whether or not this original culture has been modernized. Modernized? I wonder what that word means. At the most I can say that I move with the times, that my pieces tell stories, give sensations. Everything changes... nothing changes ?
Abdi, January 1996.
