In these years, people who are dominated by their emotions suffer from severe depression. But when a lunar year is also a year of 13 moons, like 1978, it often results in personal catastrophes.” -The opening monologue of In a Year of 13 Moons by R. W. Fassbinder We have built the world upon time and time upon the Moon and the Sun. Two contradicting cycles, two different concepts of time that do not overlap, and it is as if we are caught in the middle. The Moon navigates around us, descending and escalating time and again. The Sun has wrapped the Earth around its waist like a hula hoop, swaying it between day and night. We are in a year of 13 moons, right in the middle of the 13th full moon. It feels like it has begun without an end. A […]

Ruine, Part 1- Gradishte, 2020

  Ruine, Part 1, Gradishte, 2020 ©halidaboughriet Photography, concrete blocks, sound When the Globe is Home Treviso, 3rd July / 29th November 2020 To communicate humanity’s ancestral and instinctive need to transform even the least welcoming space imaginable – a forced labour camp in Albania during the dictatorship – into a liveable andpersonal environment, Halida Boughriet, a French artist of Algerian descent, created Ruine I, Gradishte for Gallerie delle Prigioni, an installation composed of concrete blocks and a series of photographs and portraits of people confined to this place of punishment. The work includes the voice of a woman who lived in Gradishte until the age of 17 and who continues to view it as the home of her childhood and adolescence. Ruine attempts to reinvent the notion of living in a closed and isolated space. The place of reference is a forced-labor concentration camp built in the 1950s in Gradishte, Albania, where thousands of deportees and downgraded citizens of the former autocratic Albanian communist regime were forced to live for decades. Gradishte is a ruin today, doomed to general amnesia, though there are people who still live there. Halida Boughriet revives its memories and casts them in concrete. What is it like living in exile in your […]

  IMPLANO DE ARISANA,  2018-2019 –6–channel video installation, HD video, colour, sound, 17 min Biennale de Rabat , « Un instant avant le monde » DU 24 SEPTEMBRE AU 18 DÉCEMBRE 2019 https://www.biennale.ma/portfolio-item/halida-boughriet/#exhibitions   Implano de Arisana» est un dispositif vidéographique qui aborde les questions de l’identité, du territoire et de la frontière, mais aussi la figure féminine « le mythe d’Ariane abandonnée». Considérée comme un quartier difficile, tant par son histoire que par sa population, l’Ariane est profondément isolée par le Paillon, ligne de démarcation constituant la frontière symbolique entre ce territoire et le centre-ville de Nice. Mon désir était de filmer ce quartier populaire, de le regarder autrement.  A commencer par la rencontre humaine et chaleureuse de quelques femmes qui y vivent et qui sont devenues l’axe central de mon travail.   Par une esthétique du geste, je traverse les plans architecturaux  datant de 1970 vers des personnages qualifiés de déesses. Ces femmes se font surtout l’expression collective d’une forme d’identité revendiquée et d’ouverture. J’utilise essentiellement la décomposition du temps pour donner à voir les corps en action lors de leur performance. La lumière apporte de l’intensité dramatique à la scène. Elle témoigne de leur exil qui renvoie à l’image […]

« Out of Place » – Officine dell’Immagine, Milan

OFFICINE DELL’IMMAGINE HALIDA BOUGHRIET   « Out of Place » May 16 – July 13, 2019 Curated by Silvia Cirelli, the exhibition Out of Place will present recent work by this talented artist in an Italian exclusive. Already recognised internationally for exhibitions at Centre Pompidou and Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris, the Rabat Biennale, the Los Angeles Depart Foundation, Documenta 14 and the 11th Dak’Art Biennial, Boughriet is surprising for her rare expressive eclecticism, ranging from photography to video and performance, in which she herself becomes the spokesperson for the artistic message. Always attentive to the exploration of socio-cultural, behavioural and geopolitical themes concerning current cultural situation, Boughriet translates the precariousness of a historical moment marked by a sense of uprooting, an absence of communication between people and by the need for belonging. Coming to authentic emotional essentiality and completely laying bare human vulnerabilities, this young artist’s narrative sees the body as the focal point of the entire creative journey. With the spasmodic urgency of filling the void created by a painful nomadic dynamism, the body’s symbolism is what drives the search and becomes, above all, an allegory of the return of identity. The core of the exhibition is Boughriet’s Border […]
