Born in 1955 in Iran, lives and works in Paris


After studying at the University of Tehran and the School of Fine Arts in Paris, she undertakes theoretical research and obtains a PhD at Paris-Diderot University about the correlation between text and image. Represented by Galerie Giovanna Minelli in Paris at the start of the 1990s, she is awarded the Villa Médicis hors les murs prize (1993 ) and produces a huge documentary video installation project that questions the institutional functioning of contemporary art ( Tell me about art, 1993-1994 ). A blend of sculpture, drawing, video and installation, her works explore the notion of strangeness and invisible borders between inside and outside, here and elsewhere. Her work is exhibited at Villa Arson, Centre national d’art contemporain, Nice; CAVS & MIT Museum, Cambridge, Massachusetts; Basilisk Gallery, Copenhagen; Werkstatt Gallery, Berlin.


The exhibition "Unedited History, Iran 1960-2014" (2014-2015) at Musée d’Art moderne de la ville de Paris (2014) and MAXXI in Rome (2014-2015) offered the artist an opportunity to present an extensive multidisciplinary installation where she made reference to an Iranian story of the 12th century to evoke in a universal dimension the contemporary issues.

Narmine Sadeg's work was exhibited at the Eric Dupont gallery in 2015. 

Narmine Sadeg is also lecturer in the arts department of the University of Bordeaux-Montaigne.

"Declarations" is a work in progress created in 2016 for online presentation. It is an ever-changing virtual space, a kind of personal tribune, for recording declarations related to feelings and reflections to social and political facts and events. As new declarations are recorded, older ones may be discarded. The recordings can be viewed in multitrack or single track (shorter version) videos.
