Aya Bseiso (b. Tunis, 1995) is based in Amman. Her practice relies heavily on research, text, and sampling of various archival materials. Aya is interested in experimenting with the various ways it is possible to engage, build relationships, and embed oneself in distant ecosystems—traveling between borders—by utilizing telepresence, simulating micro-climates, or rendering landscapes that probe different futures.
Whether as part of her work at MMAG Foundation, a contemporary art institution in Jordan, the collectives she is a part of or her research projects, she seeks to engage in the search for, development of, and potential of artistic and curatorial practice amidst the fluctuating socio-political context of the region.
