Faten Chouba (b. 1970) is a Tunisian visual artist. In her artistic practice, the feminine elements are always present, appearing through different myths, as Aphrodite and Pandora, as well as the sea – the womb of wombs, a place of all births and legends. An alchemy fusing the real and the imagined with the material world to evoke what is extraordinary and paradoxical. She is using a variety of media and techniques, and is interested in how collective imaginations and unconscious memories is channelled through anthropomorphism and symbolic representations.
In December 2018, Faten Chouba was invited to Residence Botkyrka through a collaboration with curator Abir Boukhari (AllArtNow). An artist talk was held with Faten in Residence Botkyrka’s apartment in Fittja on the 15th December.
