Laila Muraywid

1956 (Syrie)
Living in : Paris
Working in : Paris

It is the way of the mask that Laila Muraywid, a Syrian artist who graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus and the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, working in the French capital since 1981, explores. Because it conceals while revealing, because it makes the subject desirable as much as it creates an inaccessible distance between the viewer and the woman who wears it, Laila Muraywid's women advance masked, the better to keep their secrets. Her works are largely photographic, but sculpture and painting are also used to make the precious appear. Sometimes assembled in polyptychs, her works, formulating a dialectic and an ambivalence of desire, gain in suggestion: the eroticism that runs through them reveals itself as a weapon. It is also the audacity of the framing, the beauty of the cuts that create their power. In them, she works on the memory of intimate moments. For several years, she has also been creating sculptures.
