Selma Khadija Kahoul. Wetzikon, 1996

Selma Khadija Kahoul lives and works in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany. She studied fine arts with focus on sculpturing in Freiburg and Basel under Herta Seibt de Zinser, Hannah Weinberger, Claudia Müller and Alexandra Navratil. Bodies are mortal, always present and constantly in a dialogue with their environment. Kahoul‘s objects, body extensions and installations question these dialogues between bodies and spatial environment in the context of social and personal upheavals. She focuses on narratives of bodily-spatial development: processes of birth, (temporary) death and moulting. Her works explore the field of tension between skinning as a natural act of liberation and skinning as a loss of identity and home, sometimes experienced violently.

Which spatial structures enable and which inhibit our growth? What follows the mortality of our bodies?

Selma Khadija Kahoul participated in various artist-in-residence programmes and is currently a fellow of the cultural department of Freiburg im Breisgau.
