Histoires de Tripes
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.
