About the Artist
Alicia Jalloul (b.1994, UK) is a contemporary visual artist whose works explore paradoxical sensations of celebration, anxiety and doubt within collective culture, multiculturalism and national identity. Culturally specific phrases and sayings are defamiliarized through the use of collage, and exploring the sculptural potential of space. Jalloul sources her quotes from political soundbites, biblical origins and civic duty propaganda. Jalloul earned her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art and BA from the Glasgow School of Art. Jalloul lives and works in London, UK.
