> DESCRIPTION

Four years ago, the French-Moroccan artist Latifa Echakhch (*1974 in El Khnansa, Morocco) made her very first institutional appearance, in the group exhibition ‘Shifting Identities’ at the Kunsthaus Zürich. Now, the Kunsthaus has invited her to stage a solo show presenting her latest creations. Latifa Echakhch’s works deal with political and cultural structures and systems. Adopting an approach that is both poetic and conceptual, she reflects on our often-prejudiced perception of the unfamiliar – of national and religious identities. Frequently, she takes everyday objects from western or eastern cultural environments and places them in sensual, solidly material surroundings.
