Después del Futuro/بعد المستقبل/After the Future
Katia Kameli / 2WB-World Wide Babouch /
Through video, photography, installation and drawing, she investigates intercultural spaces, intersecting identities and their construction. Thus she positions herself as a hybrid, using a ‘third space’ to enables the emergence of other visions, forms and positions. This ‘third space’ questions historical accounts and can generate a critical stance that allows the rewriting of history and narratives.
Kameli’s work is closely linked to her personal experience of dual identities, exploring multiplicity and the ‘in-between’.
Her World Wide Babouch is a sort of ‘remix’ to Western and Oriental folk tales, the installation represents a figure of exile that roams between two extremisms whose stereotypes threaten the uprooted and scrub the identity differences. Only that 2WB seeks to exist in between.
