Malala Andrialavidrazana

Born and raised in Madagascar before settling in Paris at the age of twelve, Malala Andrialavidrazana fuels her practice by moving from one land to another. By way of the photographic medium, she interrogates barriers and interactions within cross-cultural contexts, thoughtfully shifting between private spaces and global considerations to explore social imaginaries. Over time, she has invented a language whose approach is resolutely turned toward history, while simultaneously evidencing a profound engagement with contemporary issues and developments. Based on extensive in situ as well as bibliographic and archival research, her visual compositions open up the possibility of alternative forms of storytelling and history-making.
