Tarek Lakhrissi

Born in 1992 at Châtelleraut, France

Combining text, performance, film, and installation, Tarek Lakhrissi’s multidisciplinary work is part of the power struggle of intersectionality. Influenced by feminist and queer authors such as Elsa Dorlin, Jean Genet, Monique Wittig, and José Esteban Munoz, Tarek Lakhrissi tackles political and social issues relating to language, notions of normality and strangeness, magic and love, in works in which identity appears as a social construct.

Born in 1992 in Châtellerault (France), Tarek Lakhrissi is a Franco-Moroccan artist with a degree in modern literature from the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle and in art history from the Université de Montréal. He currently lives between Paris and Brussels.
