Nour Jaouda is an Egypt-based Libyan artist, born 1997.

She is interested in the tactile process of constructing and de-constructing cultural motifs, found objects and historical narratives in order to challenge conventional ideas of identity formation. Her works attempt to orchestrate anachronistic, personal and collective mise-en-scènes that simultaneously echo traditional Libyan craftsmanship and imported western value systems, narrativising notions of placement/displacement, cultural mobility and the fluidity of our historical identities.
