Alicia Jalloul’s (b.1994, London, UK) work explores paradoxical sensations of celebration, anxiety and doubt within collective culture, multiculturalism and national identity. Through the exploration of alienated language, materiality and composition, works transcend between the bounds of the familiar and unknown. Culturally specific phrases and sayings are defamiliarized through the use of collage. There are undercurrents of sinister and ironic readings of phrases, which often originate from political soundbites, biblical origins and civic duty propaganda.
Alicia began her studies in 2013 at The Glasgow School of Art in Fine Art Photography with a BA (Hons), before recently completing an MFA in Sculpture from The Slade School of Art in 2020.
Some recent exhibitions include Slade Graduation Show, Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, 2020; London Grads Now, Saatchi Gallery, London, 2020; Unbound Surplus Aggregate, Enclave Projects, London, 2019, and The Accumulation of Things, Bonington Gallery, Nottingham.
