In her lecture Lydia Ourahmane will present two recent projects, Barzakh (2021) at Kunsthalle Basel and Triangle France, Marseille, and Solar Cry (2020) at Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts. In light of her upcoming show at Portikus in December 2021, a collaboration with DeAppel Amsterdam, Lydia Ourahmane will speak with curator Christina Lehnert about the common ground that connect these projects through her autobiographical approach that often mark her wide ranged exhibitions.

Lydia Ourahmane, (b.1992, Saïda) is an artist based in Algiers and Barcelona. Through video, sound, performance, sculpture and installation, her research-driven practice spans spirituality, contemporary geopolitics, migration and the complex histories of colonialism. Often drawing on personal experience, the work centers surveillance, logistics and bureaucratic processes and the ways these forces are registered. She graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London in 2014 and has exhibited internationally. Recent exhibitions include: Barzakh, Kunsthalle Basel (2021); Risquons-Tout, WIELS, Brussels (2020); Solar Cry, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco (2020); Breathless, Ca’Pesaro Museum of Contemporary Art, Venice (2019); Homeless Souls, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark (2019); Crude, Jameel Art Center, Dubai (2018); Manifesta 12, Palermo (2018); Jaou, Tunis (2018); Droit du Sang, Kunstverein München, Munich (2018); 2018 New Museum Triennial: Songs for Sabotage, New Museum, New York; and The You In Us, Chisenhale Gallery, London (2018).
