Farah Khelil graduated from the Institut des Beaux-Arts in Tunis in 2007, and holds a PhD in Art and Sciences of Art from Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, where she now lectures. Khelil is interested in the relationship between word and image, particularly how reality and fiction is encoded within both forms. Her current research revolves around tropes of cultural identity, which she subverts to produce new conduits into meaning.
Her works have been widely shown in Europe. Exhibitions include Medi Terraneum at the Es Baluard Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma in Majorca, Spain (2015); Un cabinet de curiosités at the Undercurrent Projects in New York, USA (2014); Restitution at the Centre d’Arts Plastiques Fernand Léger in Port de Bouc in Martigues, France (2014); Point de vue, point d’écoute at the Centre Culturel International de Cerisy in Cerisy-la-Salle, France (2013); and Perception de la Ciutat at the Centre Cívic Fort Pienc in Barcelona, Spain (2006) amongst others.
