Malala Andrialavidrazana was born in 1971, in Madagascar. Since the early 1980s Malala Andrialavidrazana has lived and worked in France. She graduated from the School of Architecture of Paris-La Villette, in 1996, and gradually oriented herself towards photography, using the multiple possibilities offered by this medium.
Malala Andrialavidrazana explores the links between architecture, contemporary art and anthropology, while calling into question, among other things, the city and its social structure. In her last series, she integrated the photomontage technique and diverted the original meaning of various photographs and images, in order to unveil hidden meanings.
Her work has been exhibited in France and abroad at numerous institutions, festivals, and contemporary art events, including at the Rencontres de Bamako, in 2005 and 2015, the Benin Biennial, Paris Photo in 2012, and at the Maison Rouge, in 2014. In 2004, she received the prestigious HSBC Photography award.
