Halida Boughriet uses a broad range of media to address notions of performance in her practice. Working at a cross-section of aesthetic, political and social concerns, Boughriet strives to capture current tensions in human relationships and society, in given historical and social contexts, and the emotions conveyed in individual and collective memory. Boughriet’s works have been exhibited in a number of international museums such as Inventory: New Works and Conversations Around African Art, Hood Museum of Art, Hanover (2016); New cinema and Contemporary Art, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin (2015); Vidéo et Après, Centre Pompidou, Paris (2014); Avec et sans Peinture, Musée d’Art contemporain du Val-de-Marne, Vitry-sur-Seine (2014); Le Corps découvert, Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris (2012) and Human Frames, Kunst im Tunnel, Dusseldorf (2011). In 2015 her work was featured at the Rencontres Internationales, held in venues across Paris, Berlin and Madrid.
