Alice Rekab studies the cultural and personal stories that are told about us as well as the ones we ourselves tell. Their own Irish-Sierra-Leonean identity anchors their reflections on family histories, the experiences of coming of age, and realities of life. A collaborative and interdisciplinary approach lets Rekab produce works spanning the domains of film, performance, image, and sculpture and create new narratives that employ the prisms of body, family, and nation to unfold questions of origin and biography.
