still life, frame still


Hollowing out is a preeminent feature of Latifa Echakhch’s installations and sculptures, where it serves to explore essentiality while enhancing the readabi- lity of her interventions. Both precise and subtle, the simplicity of her voca- bulary hints at minimal art, whilst the materials she resorts to are modest anddeliberately recognisable, organised according to a complex pattern of identifia- ble movements that are both simple and fundamental. One of the strengths of this work dwells in the masterful juxtaposition of the political and intimate spheres, which could thus spring from both critical discourses and poetry.

In these installations, personal experience encounters common themes and langua- ges: signs of cultural belonging and administrative rhetoric are considered from a distance, taken out of context and addressed as singular objects – as food for thought.Latifa Echakhch’s work is therefore situated within a complex realm where the questioning of peoples’ identity vehicles, the ideologies and symbols that are granted to them, a subjective and poetic approach, as well as the analysis of languages and their forms all overlap.
