Latifa Echakhch

A Finished, Resolved and Static Work Would Make No Sense to Me. On Words

A fascinating conversation that offers profound insights into the artistic as well as sociopolitical forces behind Latifa Echakhch’s art.
Latifa Echakhch studied at the art academies of Grenoble, Paris-Cergy, and Lyon. Now based in Switzerland, Eckakhch is concerned with the concept of culture as well as personal and collective memory in between the poles of social and political debate. Her work often features installations that make use of a wide variety of materials, such as brick and raw earth, which she mixes with ink.

This book is part of the new On Words series presenting conversations with contemporary women artists. Through these conversations, readers come to understand the sources from which they draw inspiration, the themes in their work, and their view of the world. Bringing together a wide range of viewpoints, the On Words series adds a new narrative to polyphonic art history as told by those who actively shape it.
