Nour Jaouda is a Cairo-based Libyan artist, born 1997.
Through painting, textile design and installation art, she examines issues
of identity, cultural mobility and the aesthetics of displacement in the context
of Egypt’s cultural landscape. 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 work is driven by ideas of liminality and the state of being in-between.
She explores the precariousness of our historical identities and engages
with identity as a notion being defined by an ever-changing fluidity that
belongs to the future, as much as to the past.
