press release

For its exhibition program Eldorado, dedicated to the most interesting emerging artists on the international scene, GAMeC presents 'Le rappel des oiseaux,' the first solo show in an Italian institution of Latifa Echakhch.

The exhibition is realized in collaboration with the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne of Reims, where it was presented last April; however, the overall project has been redesigned in close relationship with the exhibition space at GAMeC.

Through an extreme variety of expressive means ranging from installation to video, and painting to photography, Latifa Echakhch explores the dimensions of the individual and collective identity, the concept of culture and feelings of belonging and uprooting.

Her work is realized out of commonplace objects that the artist presents as such or after modifying them through simple actions; the conceptual matrix that lies at the basis of Latifa Echakhch's artistic practice goes hand in hand with a remarkable poetic sensibility.
