A ransom, an illicit border crossing, an exchange of nationality: Transactions of different sorts are often the conceptual starting point for Lydia Ourahmane’s (* 1992) art. The results encompass video, sound, performance, sculpture, and installation, exploring the way histories of displacement and colonial oppression are inscribed upon bodies. For her first exhibition in Switzerland, the Algerian-born artist presents a newly commissioned work.
