Chantal Zakari is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and art educator. In her work she draws upon contemporary social issues by making connections through personal narratives, history, and popular culture. Trained as a designer, she freely borrows strategies from various disciplines such as photography, documentary, performance, storytelling, and social interventions. Her work often culminates in an artist’s publication where the book format allows her to create dialogues outside of art establishments, where it can reach a wider audience. She has published (and copublished) seven mass-produced artist’s books in addition to a few hand-made ones.
