Transdisciplinary artist Haythem Zakaria draws his inspiration from cosmogony and spirituality. His work consists of constant experimentation with the possible conjunction of different systems and disciplines (sociology, economics, ethnography, etc.).
Basing his aesthetic practice on a transdisciplinary approach, the artist uses a wide variety of tools and techniques. He explores new methods in a continuous quest for archetypes through new technologies (interactive programming, installation) but also with more classical media (photography, video, drawing, sculpture).
The work of Haythem Zakaria is prolix, exploring diverse forms, disciplines and fields of research, leaning on philosophical, mythological and theological references and readings. In Interstices, his latest work for which he received the Grand Prize of the Japan Art Media Festival, the artist resorts to simpler and more basic tools while preserving the digital aspect of his art.
His work was exhibited in Tunisia, France, Belgium, England, Japan, Egypt, Morocco. Since 2010, the visual artist has created an oeuvre in which art becomes an epistemological research, and where aesthetic concerns meet social, spiritual and philosophical problematics.
Haythem Zakaria lives and works between Tunis and Paris.
