Aïcha Khorchid (French, born 1981 in Pakistan) currently lives and works in Mallorca. Her paintings, always on large wooden panels, address Khorchid’s multilayered life story that forms a central point of reference in her work. Her oeuvre is about human relationships and their complexity. In this exhibition Khorchid artistically dissects her difficult childhood in the French foster family in Normandy, presenting to us its emotionally charged daily life and people that inhabited that world. Her powerful seemingly naive visual language stresses intricacy of pain and happiness, and makes her work a vehicle to think about human condition. Khorchid’s paintings are currently featured in the group exhibition “The Beauty of Diversity” at the Albertina Modern Museum in Vienna.
