Saddie Choua is a visual artist, documentary maker and writer. By making the bridge between art and her own academic background, Choua creates politically inspired work. In her documentaries, video installations, mixed media collages and short stories she highlights racial/ethnic discrimination, discrimination against women, colonialism, class and her cats.
Choua breaks through the (visual) language of media and confronts the exoticism and sexism that are often evoked in the pseudo-reality around us. Her goal is not to tell other stories but to create 'situations' through which the reader/viewer discovers the underlying power mechanisms that determine our media culture.
