About Latifa
Latifa Elmrini Gonzalez is a multidisciplinary artist, producer, curator and writer currently based in Melbourne.
Latifa explores an intercultural and plurilinguistic heritage as the cornerstone of her practice. She often draws on the experience of cross-cultural and cross-linguistic Diaspora migrant experiences.
Latifa is particularly interested in counteracting negative cultural stereotyping, reproduction and reimagining through the ownership and re-appropriation of image, symbology and language within minority communities. She is interested in the role that visual storytelling can play in the reversal of the ‘Orientalized’, ‘colonial’ and ‘imperialistic’ gaze by the reclaiming of ownership by groups that have historically been cast out as the ‘Other’.
