“Art for me is a language that everyone can understand. Through my artistic works I want to build bridges that encourage people to exchange. Discrimination, statelessness and flight are recurring themes in my works. I hope to bring people out of the shadows of society into the light. As a Tuareg, I also see myself as a cultural mediator between the peoples of the Sahara and Europe.“
