Fakhri el Ghezal

Born in 1981 in Akouda, Tunisia. Fakhri El Ghezal - Weld Hlima is trained in engraving, photography, and videography. His work shapes the body’s various resonances by incessantly moving back and forth between the memory of the flesh and those of images. Revolving obsessively around faces, images, bodies and photographic objects, El Ghezal mines gestures with a patience that resembles a farmer waiting the slow emergence of fruit for harvest.

For his latest exhibition, "Etat Second" at La Boite a place of contemporary art, he was accompanied by an eponymous monograph with a text by Mohamed Ali Berhouma for his alter-persona” Ibrahim Matouss”, followed by a publication of photo books edited by Bao Books with Siwa Plateform as a participation in the documenta 15.
