About the work
Latifa Echakhch
Moroccan-French, b. 1974
Follow

Born in Morocco and raised in France, Latifa Echakhch mines cultural stereotypes as subject matter for her work. By deconstructing and re-presenting materials associated with Morocco and France, Echakhch creates sharp-witted installations that challenge cultural assumptions. In Untitled (Gunpowder) (2008) she created a black border by throwing gunpowder tea at a wall, simultaneously referencing war and the popularity of tea in Morocco. In Untitled I – V (2010), she covered canvases with carbon paper, which was used to make copies of revolutionary texts in France in the 1960s and ’70s. Echakhch won the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2013.
