At Tate Modern, from June 13th to October 8th, 2017, about a hundred works by Fahrelnissa Zeid (1901-1991) - paintings, drawings, sculptures - can be seen in her big retrospective. It is astonishing to hear this beautiful woman express herself in French in a video documentary where she talks about her paintings and her desire to create. I am always happy to discover the work of a pioneer. Born at the beginning of the 20th century, she was one of the first female Turkish artists to make a name for herself internationally.



Her works explore the meaning of life with a kaleidoscopic and colourful vision of tumultuous destiny and abstract hell. Looking at the portraits of these unknowns with simplified features is pleasant, in between the gentle countenances of Marie Laurencin, the Byzantine icons and the extravagances of Gustav-Adolf Mossa that I adore. A great artistic gap for an original artist with many facets, which escapes classification
