Sara Sadik is a visual artist who currently lives and works in Marseille. She describes her work as «Beurcore»: the young Maghrebian diaspora living in french suburbs culture in all its complexities and diversity.
Based on semiological and sociological analyses of the
« beurness », Sara Sadik brings many alter-egos which she plays in short-video using chromakey, 3D modulation and other CGI post-production techniques and linked them with sculptural elements via installation.
She reengages visual aesthetics, economic systems and languages used and/or created by this community, in order to create fictional and surreal situations which take place either in the present or in the near future.
By shifting many codes, Sara Sadik tries to create a composite vision which tends to singled out from what can be seen on mass-media and produces future possibilities.

In 2016, Sara Sadik created Melissa Lacoste, a french R’n’B singer whose lyrics are an autotuned anthem to Marseille.
The sprawling coastal city in the South of France, where 7up Mojitos and Caprisuns drinks flow abundantly over white & blue football jerseys, parked in the VIP corner of a hookah lounge. Where the song of the cicada is drowned out by the buzzing of scooter engines.
Her R’n’B is focused on the groove, and conscious- free.
With her acrylic, french-manicured nails and her Olympique de Marseille football club tracksuit, Melissa doesn’t expect anything from others and even less from Pick-up artists.
She released her first album « Gadji en Or » in 2016, whose 11 tracks can be heard blasting from every Renault Clio parked in the Old Port of Marseille.
She has performed multiple times in Europe for showcases, exhibitions and live broadcasts.
