Work from his oeuvre.
“A globe spinning so fast the continents can no longer be made out, flags wrapped around themselves, showing only their red colour, a video reversing the course of time – starting from the formulation of a hypothesis, the works of Fayçal Baghriche undermine our most familiar points of reference by staging fundamental actions. Playing on discrepancy, the artist invites us to distance a normalised reality. Mixing performance, installation, video and photography, he reveals, the better to annihilate them, the systems of identification, behavioural models or language structures that determine what we are and become a pretext for the poetic construction of another reality.” – Vérane Pina
