The Kamel Lazaar Foundation is delighted to present Shadow, a solo exhibition & theatrical performance by artist Zeineb Henchiri.
Shadow is an invitation to introspection and reflection. By exploring the sacrifices required to become an avatar, Zeineb Henchiri challenges us to reconsider the limits of isolation and how we can maintain a connection to each other, to ourselves and to our environment in an age where the boundaries of reality are slowly disappearing. Zeineb Henchiri will try to adresse the notion of isolation in its physical and metaphorical dimensions.
This project is a journey into the meanderings of a space, a body, an existence that refuses to be; all which presented in a series of videos and fragments of internal dialogues which will come to life through performances scheduled on May 27 - June 2 & June 10.
Shadow by Zeineb Henchiri is supported by AFAC - The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture and the Kamel Lazaar Fondation.
Biography of the artist
Born in Tunis in 1992, Zeineb Henchiri is an artist, actress, and psychologist who lives and works in Tunisia.
Through her eclectic background, she has developed a multidisciplinary artistic practice that draws on a quasi-surgical psychoanalytic approach to explore the intersection of visual and performing arts. Combining visual art, plastic installations, and performance, she questions the nature of human beings in relation to their bodies and spaces. In a continuous process of visual reﬂection and research, she examines two fundamental notions related to our relationship with the body: perception and temporality, which form the notion of being. She explores the gap between what we are, what we appear to be, and the projection that others make of us.
Her work has been presented in France (Institut du Monde Arabe, Fondation de la Maison de la Tunisie, Galerie Temps de Pose) as well as in Tunisia (Station B7L9, Fondation de la Tunisie pour le Développement, Salle le 4em Art).
