Hicham Benohoud’s practice is rooted in Moroccan culture and societal structures, exploring notions of individual and collective identity. Benohoud began his artistic journey with self-portrait photography, a medium he continues to practice, expanding his current process to incorporate mixed and new media. Humour, surrealism, performativity and self-deprecation staged in unexpected modes, are recurring elements in his work. His works are featured in the permanent collections of institutions such as the Tate Modern, London and Centre Pompidou, Paris. Benohoud’s recent exhibitions include The Time is Out of Joint, Gwangju Biennale (2016); Come Closer, MACT/ CACT, Ticino (2016) and Performing for the Camera, Tate Modern, London (2016).
