Murnau, November 4th, 2020
Swiss and Syrian visual artist Houda Terjuman is joining the PULPO GALLERY roster of artists and will be part of a group exhibition in 2021.
Houda, who was born and lives in Morocco, explores identity, displacement and stability. Her status as a hybrid migrant, a condition associated to second generation migrants, is a formative element in her work. Refusing the concept and practice of assimilation, Houda cherishes the status of hybridity which to her, offers a rich mix of backgrounds, voices and belongings. Feeling eternally foreign and displaced, her sculptures and paintings act as bearers of hope and bridges making the link between cultures. An empty chair symbolises what we left behind and keeps us connected to our roots. A lonely boat, is a bearer of hope. A floating bridge invites us to build connections and empathy towards the unknown.
