Aymen Gharbi

STATEMENT
Djerba is my home Island where i grew up. For 18 year I wanted to contribute to the cultural scene and now I got the opportunity to design an initiative with my partner Bettina Pelz. SEE Djerba for us is an open space-time when we want to gather different cultural actors and discuss with them about art and it’s important to the context of the island. We wanted also to demonstrate how Art Matters, therefore we invited international artist to contribute to this frame work and think about a site-specific art-work.

Bettina Pelz

STATEMENT
Djerba is home to Aymen, my partner in this initiative. He convinced me to spent time, energy and thought on Djerba – its landscapes and its architecture, its people and its culture. Together we created SEE Djerba as an open framework to reflect on Djerba as a living enviroment and its future. Located at the intersections of art and its contexts – whether they are social and political, cultural and historical, environmental and economical – we want to pave the way for a new environment for artists, architects, designers, cultural producers, and friends. We want to foster an open space where traditional creative roles are dissolved, where the creative disciplines are challenged, and where new concepts of art-making are shared.
