Artistic residency …عن by Malek Gnaoui and Ala Eddine Slim


L'Art Rue

Production +

…عن project developed from March 2022 by Malek Gnaoui and Ala Eddine Slim consists of a mosaic of artistic disciplines ranging from video to installation via sound documentaries as well as the musical edition of little-known works throughout Tunisia. 

ZENDALI is the term given to the singing that originated in Tunisian prisons. This form of expression appeared at the end of the 1960s and has undergone various changes, from mezoued to rap. ZENDALI is the manifestation of the sorrows, desires and demands of the prisoners and has been linked essentially to the little people of Tunisia.

Nevertheless, the two artists will go further by exploring all forms of artistic creation born and/or created within the walls of prisons.
