In her lecture Lydia Ourahmane will present two recent projects, Barzakh (2021) at Kunsthalle Basel and Triangle France, Marseille, and Solar Cry (2020) at Wattis Institute of Contemporary Arts. In light of her upcoming show at Portikus in December 2021, a collaboration with DeAppel Amsterdam, Lydia Ourahmane will speak with curator Christina Lehnert about the common ground that connect these projects through her autobiographical approach that often mark her wide ranged exhibitions.
