Chourouk Hriech
"Water is Captive to the Well," 2009

[عربي] [English]

Chourouk Hriech’s black and white drawing, "Water is Captive to the Well," is a figuration of family stories and urban landscapes. Beginning originally with A4-sized drawings, Hriech projects her work to re-create it in large-scale, on wall or, as in this case, on wood. The simplified architectural space in this work includes representations of the artist’s own body within the stories it frames, emphasizing imaging as a means of both understanding and existing. Hriech draws upon the question of individual memory and personal history by articulating the body alongside the mechanical city.
