Ghizlane Sahli present her first personal exhibition “Histoires de Tripes” at the David Bloch Gallery in Marrakech from February 9 to March 15, 2018.
The artist unveil a new series of works – bas-reliefs, volumes and drawings.
Ghizlane Sahli was born in Meknes in 1973 and grew up in Agadir. Trained in architecture in Paris, she moved to Marrakesh in 2005, where she lives and works today.
Ghizlane Sahli invites us to an inner and organic journey, carried by a universal theme, she allows us to transcend what would leave out humans from seeing « Universatility », and its sophisticated and complex mechanism. A universality that the artist cultivates on several levels: first of all by the choice of her materials – these are plastic bottles, the wire mesh which supports them or the silk which covers them, could come from any part of the globe. But also by that of the message : Ghizlane Sahli does not claim or condemn anything, for her, belonging is a fragmented prison, and identity, a notion far too complex to confine or freeze without risking alienation. To this, she consciously substitutes the exploration of what is most fundamental and common to man, his primitive origin, cleansed of all the stigmas that make it a distinction or belonging, whether cultural social, religious, geographical, racial or gender.
