Halida Boughriet, a French and Algerian artist, uses a broad range of media to address notions of performance in her artistic practice. At the crossroad of aesthetic, political and social concerns, Boughriet’s works capture and translate tensions made obvious in human relationships and society, in some given historical and social context, including the emotions conveyed in individual and collective memory. The omnipresence of human bodies is an essential aspect of her poetical/experimental work.
Boughriet’s works has been exhibited in several international Museums such as the Museum of Modern Art of Algiers; the Hood Museum in USA; the Düsseldorf Kunst in Tunnel in Germany; the Centre Pompidou, the MAC/VAL Museum (Musée d’Art contemporain du Val de Marne) and the Institut du Monde Arabe in France; and The Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Germany. In 2014 she was selected for the Dak’art Biennial, and in 2015 her work was featured at the Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin/Madrid.
