Janet Sebri is a Mechatronics Engineering student at the National Engineering School of Carthage-ENICarthage. She joined the Interference community in 2018 where she worked in the Cultural Heritage studio. In the 2020 edition, Janet has joined the Interference curatorial team.

CURATORIAL STATEMENT:

“INTERFERENCE introduced me to the opportunity for experience that art gives and taught me how to embrace a public-centered attitude.
When I first joined INTERFERENCE it wasn’t necessarily the art aspect of the project that brought me here. I remember I attended a presentation about the festival, and what captured my attention were the photos of the volunteers setting up the sites, organizing, installing the artworks. I could tell they were having a blast and I admired the sense of selflessness and belonging that I saw, so I joined the team. Working on the project has shown me that I don’t need an artistic background to actually have a perspective on art. Coming from a scientific environment, joining the community felt like entering a new culture, it certainly contributed to shaping my personality and aspirations and as a result, I decided to delve deeper into curatorship.
What I like about the curatorial experience is that it makes me feel more present and impactful. Curators care for art, society, and individuals alike, and this offers an out-of-the-ordinary experience to represent the local culture and create a platform for societal encounters. I am certainly looking forward to witnessing the interactions of the public with our forthcoming exhibitions”
