Nour Jaouda is a Cairo-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. Through painting, textile design and

installation art, her works explore issues of identity, cultural mobility and the

aesthetics of displacement in the context of Egypt’s cultural landscape.
