Born in Iran, lives and works in Paris.

Narmine Sadeg studied visual arts at Tehran university and at Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris where she was a student of Christian Boltanski. Being Interested in theoretical research, she pursued a PhD on interferences of painting and writing at Paris-Diderot University. This research, which questioned the permeability of the borders of different artistic mediums, became essential in the development of a multidisciplinary practice henceforth with a strong tendency for the use of language and writing.

Narmine Sadeg’s work reveals a sensitive observation of society and the world around us, questioning cultural conditionings and intimate feelings of individuals caught up in this society. In her investigations we notice some traces of anthropological procedures and references to History.
