Artist's introduction: 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.
