HELL NO* meeting with the artist Tarek Lakhrissi in the presence of Madeleine Planeix-Crocker and Fabrice Bourlez, coordinators of the Troubles, Dissidences and Aesthetics chair.


Tarek Lakhrissi is a French artist and poet with a background in literature. His literary background is nourished by influences from feminist and queer authors, such as Elsa Dorlin, Jean Genet, Monique Wittig and José Esteban Muñoz, giving his work a critical atmosphere. Each project Lakhrissi initiates derives from text, poetry and language, which are his main obsessions, before translating the ideas of these mediums into the visual arts.

Recent solo and group exhibitions include Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Museum of Contemporary Art ; 22nd Biennale of Sydney (AU), Wiels (Brussels), Manchester International Festival (Manchester), Fondation Ricard (Paris), Frac Lorraine (Metz), CAC Brétigny, High Art (Paris), Grand Palais, FIAC (Paris), La Galerie CAC (Noisy-Le-Sec), Fondation Lafayette Anticipations (Paris), Hayward Gallery (London), CRAC Alsace (Altkirch), Veda gallery (Florence), Confort Moderne (Poitiers), Mostyn (Llandudno), Shedhalle (Zurich); Palazzo Re Rebaudengo/Sandretto (Guarene/Torino), Kevin Space (Vienna), Quadriennale di Roma; Palazzo delle Esposizioni (Rome), Auto Italia South East (London), L'Espace Arlaud (Lausanne), Kim?
