Alice Rekab is a visual artist based in Dublin. Their practice is concerned with expressions and iterations of complex personal and cultural narratives. Rekab takes their own mixed-race Irish identity as a starting point from which to explore experiences of race, place and belonging. Their work centres processes of collaboration and interdisciplinary exchange from which they develop film, performance, print, text, and sculpture—creating new intersectional objects for exhibition. Recent Projects include Mehrfamilienhaus, Ricochet #14, Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, 2023; Family Lines Project, Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, 2021-22; Truth Flags Identity, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, 2020; The Nomoli/Father talk, VERY Project Space, Berlin, 2019, and The Open Object, Stanley Picker Gallery, London, 2018.
Rekab’s work is held in the collections of Trinity College Dublin, The Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Cathal Ryan Trust and The Arts Council of Ireland. In 2023 they published their first artist monograph Alice Rekab: Mehrfamilienhaus with Museum Villa Stuck and Distanz Verlag Berlin.
