Adji Dieye is a Senegalese-Italian artist working between Zurich, Milan, and Dakar. She graduated in New Technologies for Art at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan and is now a Master’s degree student in Fine Arts at the Zurich University of the Arts. Adji Dieye’s artistic practice questions the transmedia nature of the photographic medium in an attempt to investigate its epistemology when dealing with notions of identity in a post-colonial era.
Her research looks at the agency of images in the economy of national and cultural representation in public spaces of diasporic and west-African identities. Through her work, Dieye presents the embedded political paradox of identitarian imageries.
Since 2018 Adji Dieye exhibitited in several international venues: Lagos PhotoFestival, Les Rencontres de la photographie African Bamako, Kunsthalle Wien, Dak’art Biennale 2020, Clarck House Mumbai, Foam Museum.
Adji Dieye is presenting her work Red Fever in the group exhibition The New Vernacular.
