Yasmina Ziyat

Yasmina uses many materials: pigments, alum stones, needles, wire, copper, nylon, cotton and transparent fabrics. She uses principally women’s tights. Her approach is to show a feminine world full of secrets, ambiguities, pain and happiness. She consciously chooses the elements and materials according to a need that may be formal, aesthetic or purely instinctive and emotional.


Her approach is based on finding a balance between light and shadow. Yasmina does not want to create a flat image, but to open a deep space, creating a more homogenous and balanced universe. The superposition of the elements, the transparency of nylon and the rips through which the light shines through create a play of light and shadow whose aim is both to conceal and to reveal. This contrast represents the tensions that can be found in today’s society.
