Hamza HALLOUBI’s work shows an interest both in the grammar and semiotics of film and language. These rather theoretical fields are then linked to more subjective issues such as memory and translation. Taking personal experience as a point of departure and filtering it through more abstract concepts, Hamza HALLOUBI creates inviting visual metaphors. His films develop an aesthetic that tries to merge the internal poetics of human encounters with a rather conceptual approach. His light boxes and installations investigate language’s ability to evoke narratives from fragmented writings.
His work spans across a wide range of media, including film, video, photography, and installation.
