Bouchra Khalili’s biography

Saturday 5 November 2011

[English] [français]

Bouchra Khalili is a French-Moroccan video-artist, born in 1975 in Casablanca. With a strong focus on the Mediterranean area, her videos deals with nomadism and displacement, relations and distances between physical and imaginary geographies. She works on the frontiers of the cinema and visual arts, documentary and fiction; experimenting with the visual and conceptual limits of these media. Her work has been shown at numerous international exhibitions, biennials, and festivals, including the New York Video Festival (Lincoln Center); The Film-Laboratorio (Museum of Contemporary Art of Rome and Villa Médicis), The Biennale of The Moving Image (Genève, Switzerland), La Force de l’Art (Galerie Nationale du Grand Palais, Paris), VideoBrasil (Sao Paulo, Brasil), Documentaire d’Avant-Garde (La Cinémathèque Française, Paris). Khalili studied cinema at the Sorbonne Nouvelle and Fine Arts at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris-Cergy. She lives and works in Paris

In recent Khalili’s videos, the issues of territory create a sort of landscape, characterized by a focus on subjective relationships, and in the territorialization/deterritorialization motions typical of our times. Through Khalili’s images, we glimpse a subtle revelation of the situations and tensions that territory, borders, and the urban space provoke in our subjectivities. Eduardo De Jesus
