Alice Rekab

Artist's introduction: Family Lines

To coincide with their exhibition Family Lines, Alice Rekab introduces some of the concepts and approaches behind their project FAMILY LINES.

Alice Rekab’s work explores embedded personal and cultural narratives; the stories that we tell and the stories that we are told about ourselves. This work emerges from their own mixed-race Irish identity, their family history, experiences of growing up, and the context of present day Ireland. Working across film, sculpture, performance, print and installation, they deftly consider the making of one’s belonging through the prisms of the body, the family and the nation state, exploring associated joy and trauma.
