G-LAND is a project designed to bring young men into a virtual world, where they can carry out ‘gambling sessions’. The ‘brainstorming sessions’ are moments during which these young men think intensely about their lives, their past, their future, their worries and anxieties. These ‘gambergeurs’ are tormented, neglected and forgotten young men, who have no access to escape, support or personal follow-up, leaving them alone to face themselves. G-LAND is designed as a solution for these young men to enable them to carry out these ‘gambling sessions’ in a favourable environment, providing them with all the conditions and elements they consider necessary for a productive gambling session in order to preserve their physical and mental health.
Graduated from Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux FR in 2018, Sara Sadik‘s work has been presented in various group exhibitions, including Karma International (Zurich, 2017), «Désolé» at Galerie Edouard Manet (Gennevilliers, 2019), «Intérieur, pluie» at Galerie Crèvecoeur (Paris, 2020) and Manifesta 13 (Marseille, 2020). Sara Sadik has also presented performances at the Festival Do Disturb, Palais de Tokyo (Paris, 2019) and at the Festival Parallèle, Friche la Belle-de-mai (Marseille, 2020).
Sara Sadik’s practice focuses on the french working-class youth culture, especially the Maghrebi diaspora. Documenting and deconstructing its social mythologies, through references linked to music, language, fashion and social media, into narratives from the documentary register to science-fiction as well as reality-TV scenarios. Sara Sadik particularly explores young masculinities, fleshing out rarely tackled subjects that animates theses young men, such as love, solitude, vulnerability as well as abandonment and self-esteem issues.
In the current context of health crisis, the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris, The Friends of Museum Society and its Committee on Contemporary Art has set up an initiative with the aim to support 10 young artists.
The artists selected by the curatorial team of the Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris are Marie Angeletti, Laëtitia Badaut Haussmann, Gaëlle Choisne, Morgan Courtois, Arash Hanaei, Jean-Charles de Quillacq, Clément Rodzielski, Sara Sadik, Naoki Sutter-Shudo and Stefan Tcherepnin.
Each artist has been invited to create a short video without any specific theme imposed. Friends of the Museum Society donates the films united under the title «Intérieurs 2020».
