Born in Madagascar in 1971, Malala Andrialavidrazana moved to Paris at the age of twelve. As a graduate of the National School of Architecture in Paris-La Villette, the artist draws on her knowledge to deconstruct the photographic medium and invent a new language by borrowing from the other arts. Through her creations, she questions our history, as well as contemporary issues and underlines the contrasts between the perception of the Western world and the countries of the South. Her committed work has been exhibited in Africa (Bamako Encounters, Donwahi Foundation), Europe (PAC Milano, Konstmuseum) and the United States (Art Institute of Chicago, Ford Foundation), and was awarded the HSBC Prize in 2004. In 2020, Malala Andrialavidrazana was also appointed ambassador of the H Foundation gallery space in Paris.
