ZEENNI Sandra, ceramics, permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since 2006

Sandra Zeenni, lives and works in Paris

Her pieces are present in several public collections in France and Japan.

Her last public exhibitions were held in 2022 at the Palais Jacques Coeur in Bourges, in 2020 in the Museums of Bourges and Vierzon, in 2019 at the Hôtel Gouïn in Tours, as part of the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci, in 2015 at the Musée de Sarreguemines and in 2014 at the Musée National Adrien Dubouché, in Limoges and at the Villa Empain (Boghossian Foundation) in Brussels, Belgium.

In 2022, the Liz O'Brien NY gallery presents her sculptures at the Armory Salon Art & Design, in New York. The gallery Capazza exhibits her sculptures, including the bronze Myn, at Antica Namur, Belgium, after his participation in the group exhibition "Terra Incognita" in its walls, in the spring.

In 2020, in the Contemporary Art course "Georges Jeanclos-Auguste Rodin, modelling the living" realized by the Capazza Gallery, in partnership with the Rodin Museum, her sculptures are exhibited in Nançay and Azay-le-Rideau as well as the mentioned museums.
In 2015, her works were presented at Collect International Art Fair, at the Saatchi Gallery in London, represented by the Collection Gallery.
In 2016, a solo exhibition was dedicated toher by the Capazza Gallery.
In 2017 and 2018, it is at the Park Avenue Armory that the Liz O'Brien Gallery shows her sculptures, in New York.

Sandra Zeenni's latest sculptures dialogue with the expressionist work of Auguste Rodin. They give rise to organic forms, often deserotized, that articulate and link together like mutant creatures generated by rhizomic growth. They play on the surprise effect produced by the succession of discordant points of view. The discrepancy between forms (anfractuosities, bumps, cavities...) and a mastered material accentuates these anomalies and the fantastic climate of his pieces.


Born in 1968, Sandra Zeenni lives and works in Paris, after a childhood spent in Lebanon and an still a strong link with this country. Holder of numerous prizes or distinctions, she is represented by several galleries in Europe and in France, among them the gallery Capazza. Her pieces are present in several public collections in France and in Japan.
