Associate Studio Programme 5 : Lydia Ourahmane

For our third studio visit of the year, we were delighted to have Lydia Ourahmane visit us in February, despite her having moved to Algiers. Our conversation began with an exploration of the often blurry distinctions between work and play within art practices; one may contribute to the other and, at the same time, they are not mutually exclusive. This led to a discussion around exhibition making, in which artists have to provide enough access points into their way of thinking for viewers that have no previous knowledge about their practice. Which is a delicate balance of not giving away too much, to allow the viewer to form their own interpretation, while being generous enough so that the work remains accessible to most. Yin Yi Fung
