Ismail Bahri studied art in Paris and in Tunis, his hometown. His work incorporates a lot of cultural references and aesthetic, developing visual experiments as sensitive as accurate. The results of these experiments take forms that vary in format: drawings, videos, photographs, installations. Of the strange rituals invented by the artist, emerges a questioning of the limits of the visible and the perception itself. His work has been shown at Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Collège de Parme (Paris), Cinémathèque of Tangiers, the Staatliche Kunsthalle (Karlsruhe), Kunst Im Tunnel (Düsseldorf), La Centrale électrique (Brussels), British Film Institute (London ), Fondazione Mertz (Turin), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), among others.
