How Do We Belong?

Alice Rekab (b. Dublin, 1987; lives and works in Dublin) studies the cultural and personal stories that are told about us as well as the ones we ourselves tell. Their own Irish-Sierra-Leonean identity anchors their reflections on family histories, the experiences of coming of age, and realities of life. A collaborative and interdisciplinary approach lets Rekab produce works spanning the domains of film, performance, image, and sculpture and create new narratives that employ the prisms of body, family, and nation to unfold questions of origin and biography.

To be published in conjunction with their exhibition at Museum Villa Stuck as part of the RICOCHET series, Rekab’s first monographic artist book features collages created especially for the occasion and an indexical overview of the origins and lives of the objects they uses. It is rounded out by essays by Cairo Clarke, Anne-Françoise Schmid, and Isabelle Sully and a conversation between Alice Rekab and curator Sabine Schmid.
