Yassef’s videos, photographs, sculptures and installations reveal the poetry of everyday life, emphasizing the subtle gap between perception and reality. Strangeness and often even the supernatural surfaces when and where one least expects it.

Yassef earned a graduate degree in Visual arts from both ENSBA, Paris and Sorbonne University. She just completed a post-graduate degree at La Seine research program (ENSBA), and earned a residency fellowship from the Quartier Museum in Vienna. She is represented by the Georges-Philippe & Nathalie Vallois gallery, Paris. Recent exhibitions include: Centre d’Art Contemporarain, Brétigny-sur-Orge, France; Kunsthalle, Baden Baden and Musée d’Art Moderne, Paris.

Virginie’s residency at Location One is supported by CulturesFrance and Ville de Paris.
