Invited for a live broadcast on “Canal Algérie” TV, Agathe Simon presents the life and work of Gabriela Conti (1974-2010), hijacking the codes of television interviews, and diverting it toward a fictional world which she clandestinely introduces into the Algerian audiovisual landscape.

Agathe Simon is a Paris-based artist, born in 1977. After a decade of art projects throughout the world, she starts a partenrship with the art company The Group in Paris in 2017. She is also conducting artistic creation workshops at the Sorbonne University.

Agathe Simon is currently preparing projects in partnership with ‘Les Voûtes’ (a Parisian alternative art venue), the “C.N.R.S.” (the largest governmental research organisation in France), the Paris Cergy National Graduate School of Arts, the University of Cergy-Pontoise, and the Museum of Non-conformist Art (Saint Petersburg, Russia). These projects will include performances, films, and exhibitions.
