Chourouk Hriech's biography

Chourouk Hriech was born in 1977 in France.

Chourouk Hriech develops her work essentially around drawing, without turning away from installation. Her research is based on an observation of changing urban landscapes, a navigation through the worlds she examines, and which are available to her. She practices exclusively black and white drawing and invests medias that are as diverse as singular, including paper, walls and even everyday objects. Hriech’s work transcends time and space by reshaping modern and ancient architectural motives while setting up, simultaneously, imaginary spaces and mental architectures.

She graduated with a degree in history and art history at the University Lumière in Lyon. Then she joined the School of Fine Arts of Lyon from where she graduated in 2002. Chourouk Hriech was exhibited in La distance en son lieu, Artothèque of Pessac, France (2018) ; Kedem-Kodem-Kadima, CCA, Tel Aviv, Israel (2018) ; De quoi ce monde est-il le miroir ?,Contemporary Art Center Albert Chanot, Clamart, France (2017).

Chourouk's works can be found, among others in the Fonds Municipal d’Art Contemporain, Paris (France), the Janelly and Jean-René Fourtou Foundation (France), the Fonds Communal d’Art Contemporain, Marseille (France), the Caisse de Dépôt et de Gestion (Morocco), the Collection SAMART Project (France)…
