Adji Dieye's artistic practice questions the transmedia nature of the photographic medium and is interested in the role and legacies of epistemology in the contemporary construction of the self.

Her research focuses on the economy of representation and particularly on the construction of national representations in West African countries following independence. Through her projects, Adji Dieye addresses visual representation and the commodification of identity while critiquing cultural norms and stereotypical roles. Dieye deconstructs the way in which societal representation in the public sphere influences the individual's imagination and the general perception we have of ourselves.

Recently, Dieye has been researching the national archives of Senegal in Dakar. This research is an opportunity for the artist to highlight forms of dialogue and recontextualisation of historical knowledge in the contemporary neo-liberal and postcolonial context.
