Meet the Artist | Nelly Zagury

Nelly Zagury was born and raised in Paris and studied at HEAR (Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin) in Strasbourg and the HEAD (Haute Ecole d’art et de design) in Geneva. Her work is heavily influenced by her Moroccan heritage and draws her inspiration from mythology and a passion for Kitsch. She currently finds herself on a quest to propose a new experience of femininity. Her purpose in these works is to give a women’s point of view on eroticism and sexuality. Nelly is reinterpreting ancient North African mythologies through a feminist perspective, transforming them with sensuality, humor, and eroticism.

“I want to celebrate womanhood through these rituals, injecting sexual freedom and female power into these sacred spaces.”

– Nelly Zagury

SEE HER WORK

In these sculptures, Nelly Zagury worked with ceramic and porcelain to give a surreal approach, a genie in a lamp which is shaped into a women’s breast, in order for the viewer to ask themselves, “what do you wish for?” Or “what do you want in this life?” The concept behind the arrow is having a crush.
