The video "Le Sort/The Fate" features a self portrait of the artist in constant transformation. Mouna Jemal Siala thus interrogates the role of Tunisian women in the new state. Due to the gradual islamisation of the country since the revolution, many Tunisians see the hard-won achievements and women’s rights in jeopardy.
Mouna Jemal Siala, born in Paris in 1973, lives and works in Tunis. She studied at the Institut Technologique d’Art, d’Architecture et d’Urbanisme in Tunis and at the Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris.
