Programme

Barzakh, Lydia Ourahmane

Curator: Céline Kopp

For her first solo exhibition in France, Lydia Ourahmane (Saïda, 1992) presents a new installation entitled Barzakh. This Arabic word meaning “barrier” or “separation” refers to a space between the living and the beyond or an earth language between two seas, a shelter. The artist challenges the porosity of borders and transitory forms of existence. This exhibition is co-produced by Triangle - Astérides, Centre d'Art Contemporain and the Kunsthalle Basel, with the support of GMEM CNCM Marseille and Rhizome, Algiers.

Silina Syan in residence

Silina Syan's work comes from her questionings about cultural hybridity. Feeling in an in-between. Her practice is transdisciplinary. It oscillates between portraits, fashion photography, photo-journalism, documentary and video. In an autobiographical way, linked to her different origins, and meanwhile questioning her links to these communities, she evokes childhood souvenirs, reclaims a story, and the narratives told by her parents.

Zahra started landscape photography and street documentation from her own living environment with the focus of displaying people's lifestyles around her as a downtown. She is passionate to work with women, for women and pulling women from unseen corners to the public spaces. Zahra is a moment hunter as a photographer, but she does not limit herself to pictures; she also added Graphics and Designing to her skill to improve her message delivery. She participated in multiple film making and editing workshops and mural painting arts.
