In his installations, collages, and videos, Kader Attia places the notion of repair at the centre of his practice. His works highlight differences between Western modes of repair that attempt to erase imperfection and those that mend while maintaining the visual traces of injury, such as in some African and Japanese traditions. Examining the ways in which Western societies erase injury and imperfection, Attia looks to the treatment of both objects and the body, viewing them as artifacts which physically and symbolically hold the marks of history.
