Latifa Echakhch

 
Latifa Echakhch belongs to a younger generation of artists who are rediscovering modern art and using it for their own objectives. Her works revolve around questions and representations of cultural identity and question the symbolic meaning of objects. Echakhch's biography - as a Frenchwoman with Moroccan roots living in Switzerland - plays a central role and is often the starting point for current themes. The edition titled "2011" is a photograph of a section of the installation "Erratum" (2004/11), which she created in the same year for the exhibition Beispiel Schweiz. Entgrenzungen und Passagen als Kunst at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein.

"Erratum" is a conceptual spatial work that the artist had previously performed at other venues. In Vaduz, she threw a total of more than 400 pieces of "Moroccan" tea glasses in a high arc - sorted by colour - one by one into the exhibition space between the wall and the floor.

The edition produced by Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein with Echakhch shows a real-size section of the wall with the traces left by the smashed glasses on the wall - seemingly filigree injuries of controlled destruction.

Latifa Echakhch (* 1974 in El Khnansa, Morocco) lives and works in Fully, Switzerland.
