We are pleased to announce that we now represent Moroccan-born, Switzerland-based artist Latifa Echakhch. In 2022, Echakhch will represent Switzerland at the 59th Venice Biennale and present her first solo exhibition at our new London space on Hanover Square.
Echakhch, whose internationally celebrated practice spans painting, sculpture, and installation, explores the political valences of a diverse range of materials in her work. Echakhch’s abstractions and lyrical forms meditate on personal and societal conflicts, memory, and migration, among other subjects. Describing her practice as a synthesis of “politics and poetry,” Echakhch employs methods of erasure and destruction to transform everyday objects into culturally loaded signifiers of identity, history, and mythology.
