Bochra Taboubi (*1993, lives and works in Tunis) studied product design at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts of Tunis. She is interested in organic shapes, biomimicry and the relationship between Human and Nature. These biological and philosophical inquiries take the form of drawings, monographs, videos and installations. She mainly works on artificial life with fictitious creatures to create her own fabulatory repertoire that is questioning human’s issues.
Bochra Taboubi participated at the Octopus Programme by the University of Applied Art of Vienna and the Kamel Lazaar Foundation in Tunis (2020/2021), was an artist-in-residence at Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (2019/2020) and at the Performing art center in Tunis (2018/2019).
In Vienna she collaborates with Verena Miedl-Faißt and the school class of the BG/BRG Keimgasse Mödling to imagine a new museum for the lost collection of Métlaoui. The results will be presented at philomena+@the Belvedere 21, on Tue 18/04/2023, 3 – 5 pm.
