Alice Rekab’s practice is concerned with expressions and iterations of complex cultural and personal narratives. Alice Rekab takes their own mixed-race Irish identity as a starting point from which to explore experiences of race, place and belonging. Over the last ten years Rekab’s practice has centred around collaboration and interdisciplinary work from which they produce film, performance, image and sculpture, creating new intersectional narratives and objects for exhibition. Recent Projects include Mehrfamilienhaus, Museum VILLA STUCK , Munich (2023); FAMILY LINES Project, Douglas Hyde Gallery(2022); Mountain Language, Galway Arts Centre(2022) Concealed in the half-light, Catalyst Arts Centre, Belfast (2021), Truth, Flags, Identity, Temple Bar Gallery+Studios // Culture Night Dublin (2020) The Nomoli/Father talk, VERY Project Space, Berlin (2019) and The Open Object, Stanley Picker Gallery, London (2018).
