“At Flatland Projects, Lakhrissi will be presenting Unfinished Sentence II, an installation which originally sprouted from the contents of Monique Wittig’s 1969 novel Les Guérillères. Building on the novel’s twin themes of rebellion and restoration, Lakhrissi invites audiences to find their own path through a maze of suspended metal spears. Playing with light and sound, gothic, utopic and romantic elements collide in this emotive vortex.”
Lakhrissi is a French artist and poet with a background in literature. He works across installation, performance, film, text and sculpture, engaging with political and social issues around transformative narratives within language, magic, weirdness, codes and love.
Lakhrissi has had international solo presentations at museums,galleries and art fairs including: Archivio Storico Comunale,Palermo, IT; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, IT;MOSTYN, Llandudno, UK; Frieze London 2022, UK; Centre d’ArtContemporain, Noisy-Le-Sec, FR; VITRINE, London, UK;KevinSpace, Vienna, AT; Zabriskie, Genève, CH.
Flatland Projects is an East Sussex based artist-led exhibition, education, and community programme founded in 2018 by artists Ben Urban & Billy Stanley in Hastings, East Sussex.
Flatland's core focuses are to support artists of an emerging stage of practice to reach new audiences, access funding, and to create collaborative ambitious projects with artists for the first time in their career. In 2019 Phoebe Cripps joined Flatland as an associate curator following on from her curated group show at the gallery Slippery Bodies which was part of the public programme of Still I Rise: Feminisms Gender Resistance Act II at the De La Warr Pavilion.
Since opening Flatlands has received 4 rounds of Arts Council England Project Grant funding which has enabled the programme to remain free and open to all.
Flatland Projects has now moved to Bexhill on Sea where it will run and deliver the exhibition, education, and early career studio programme at Beeching Road Studios in partnership with Rother District Council.
