Madiha Sebbani

Born 1991 in Salé, Morocco

Currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom

Madiha Sebbani is a multidisciplinary artist who graduated from the National Institute for Fine Arts, Tétouan, in 2015. She is currently pursuing her Masters Degree in Public Art and New Artistic Strategies at the Bauhaus University in Germany. Endorsed by the British Art Council, in 2020 Sebbani was granted a 'Global Arts and Cultural Talent Visa' to continue her research and practice in the United Kingdom. Madiha’s practice often consists of minimalist performances, inspired by daily Rituals and intimate gestures. These performative acts question our relationship to what is out of the ordinary and our ability to deviate from experimentation. Sebbani enjoys experimenting with different mediums to approach her creative sensibilities, such as combining different plastic forms and techniques, either embodied in installations, paintings, photographs, video, happenings or performances. Much of Sebbani’s research is influenced by power dynamics inherent from her upbringing at a military base.

In 2016, she participated in the 5th edition of the 'New Talents Biennale' in Cologne, Germany, as well as a Residency and Solo Exhibition, 'Silent Treatment', in 2017 at the Kunstraum Fuhrwekswaage Art Centre, Köln, Germany as well as the COFA (Cologne International Fine Arts Fair) in 2016. Madiha has recently returned from an Artist In Residency at the Kunstmeile Krems Betriebs GmbH, Krems, Austria. In 2018 Madiha also curated the international travelling Group Exhibition, YMA (Young Moroccan Artists), at Sulger-Buel Gallery in London, United Kingdom, and later at the DEG Bank in Cologne, Germany as well as New York and Washington D.C, United States of America. Her work forms part of the 'KFW DEG Bank of Germany Bridge Collection'.
