The singular Fayçal Baghriche’s artistic process is to reveal strangeness and poetry of our daily practices by questionning the relevance of normative systems that regulate both public area and collective social behaviours. By working with easily identifiable objects and videos that are collected, intermixed and manipulated with humor and simplicity, he tries to defeat our reflexes and hability to identify those common objects : this is an invitation to re-think more critically the very concept of identity, collective or personnal, and the everyone’s quest to belong to a singular politic, social or religious membership.
In the past 10 years, Fayçal Baghriche has exhibited widely across the world : Brooklyn Euphoria in New-York, Dashanzi Art Festival of Beijing and Biennale of Gwandju and of Dakar. His work has also been exhibited in the Huston’s Contemporary Art Museum, Outspot for Contemporary art of Los Angeles, Bielefelder Kunstverein in Germany, Al Riwaq Art Space Bahrein, Modern Museum of Alger, Delfina Foundation (London, 2012), Vögele Kultur Zentrum (Switzerland, 2014), Villa Empain (Brussels, 2013) and BrotKunsthalle Wien (Austria, 2012).
In France, his works have been presented in Villa Arson in Nice, the CAPC in Bordeaux, the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the Vasarely Foundation and the Centre Pompidou (2013). He also participated to the triennale « La force de l’art » (Paris, 2009), « La Nuit Blanche » (Paris) and the « Printemps de septembre » (Toulouse). In 2011, he was part of the exhibition « The Future of a promise » during the 54ème biennale of Venice.
