A solo exhibition of Moroccan-born, Swiss-based artist, Latifa Echakhch. This exhibition coincides with her representation of Switzerland at the 59th Venice Biennale, underscoring this landmark moment in her career.
Marking her first exhibition with the gallery since joining Pace’s roster, Latifa Echakhch: Night Time will present a suite of new paintings across the ground floor galleries of 5 Hanover Square.
Informed by the ways in which everyday objects and imagery can be transfigured into signifiers of identity, history, and mythology, Latifa Echakhch’s practice takes the form of painting, installation, sculpture, and sound. Describing her work as “a question of power and postures”, Echakhch states she has “no other goals but questioning the world around me”. Throughout her career, Echakhch has constructed a visual vocabulary of signs, systems, and references that are rooted in her impulse to convey the experience of a feeling, to transcend that which is easily defined and arrive at the intangible.
Latifa Echakhch: Night Time is connected to The Concert, her presentation at the Swiss pavilion in Venice, where she will employ abstract conditions of light, form, and sound theory to provoke an experience akin to “leaving a concert”, in which a visitor’s “heartbeat [is] transformed, more calm, more intense”. The new body of work at Pace in London is the artist’s most figurative to date, bringing the presence of the body into her distinctive visual lexicon.
