Lydia Ourahmane - Barzakh

No reservation required. Click here to learn how to get in as a member.

“Barzakh” means “limbo” in Arabic, but also refers to the state in between life and death, a realm in which a spirit waits but also a physical place that offers relief. For her project, Lydia Ourahmane (b. 1992, Saïda, Algeria) moved the entire contents of her rented flat in Algiers to Europe after the lockdown of 2020. Unable to return to Algeria because of the closing of the country's borders, she had her home brought to her in the form of an installation. 

Barzakh was commissioned by Kunsthalle Basel and is a co-production of Kunsthalle Basel and @Triangle-Astérides, Centre d’art contemporain, Marseille. S.M.A.K. is the third stage in a journey that saw “Barzakh” travel from Basel to Marseille and then to Gent.

Ghent, S.M.A.K.
