Tarek Lakhrissi


Lives and works between Paris and Brussels.

Tarek Lakhrissi, (1992, Châtellerault, FR), a poet and visual artist, develops his practices through various mediums like writing, performance, video and sculpture. The language at the root of his work endeavours to open a new field of poetic battle and alternative definition, tackling the question of minorities and of identity determinisms through recited and danced lecture-performances, as well as video and object installations. Exploring words, internets and emotions, Tarek Lakhrissi’s work defies the codification of language and imagination through emancipatory re-articulations and games of utterance and empowerment in which he makes reference just as much to slang and popular culture as to theoretical and literary works.
