Histoires de Tripes is a solo exhibition of drawings and sculptures by Moroccan artist Ghizlane Sahli. After exhibitions in London, Marrakesh, Milan, and Paris, Sahli shares new works of her current work cycle "Histoires de Tripes" for the first time in Germany, showing a selection of six cellular-form ink drawings and eleven sculptures made from silk-wrapped bottle tops which she refers to as "the Alveoles".
Sahli's art practice is deeply inspired by her background in architecture and embroidery and her interest in environmental sustainability. The artist creates her pieces in bright red, black, and white silk-thread and weaves the individually wrapped pieces and spiraling parts into intricate sculptural designs, arranged into both abstract and recognizable forms and referencing organic matter such as coral reefs, hives, and bodily organs.
Ghizlane Sahli was born in Meknes, Morocco. After studying architecture at the École d'Architecture de Paris-Tolbiac and the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-Belleville, she returned to Morocco to settle in Marrakech and open an embroidery workshop with local artisan women. In 2012, Sahli co-founded the artist collective Zbel Manifesto that dedicates its practice primarily to working with waste and repurposed materials.
This catalogue is published in conjunction with the show "Ghizlane Sahli: Histoires de Tripes" at Sakhile&Me. It contains images of all the works in the exhibition and as well as review essays and an interview with the artist.
