Lydia Ourahmane, __ kg Fertile soil smuggled from Medea, Algeria., 2015-16

A ransom, an illicit border crossing, an exchange of nationality: Transactions of different sorts are often the conceptual starting point for Lydia Ourahmane’s art. The results encompass video, sound, performance, sculpture, and installation, exploring the way histories of displacement and colonial oppression are inscribed upon bodies. For this exhibition, Lydia Ourahmane presents a newly commissioned work.
