Latifa Elmrini is a visual artist, producer, curator and writer. Exploring intercultural and plurilinguistic heritage as the cornerstone of her practice she often draws upon the experience of cross-cultural and cross-linguistic Diaspora migrant experiences.
Of interest to Latifa is the exploration of historic memory and misrepresentation of the ‘Muslim/Arabic body, language, experience’. Particularly interested in counteracting cultural stereotyping, reproduction and reimagining of image, symbology, language and history.
Latifa is interested in the role that visual storytelling plays in the reversal of the ‘Orientalized colonial’ gaze by reclaiming ownership by groups that have historically been cast out as the ‘Other’.
