Huda Takriti (1990, Damascus) is a transdisciplinary artist currently based in Vienna. Her practice ranges from painting and drawing to video, sound, sculpture, and installation. Her works explore the relationship between history and politics, memories and counter-memories, and the construction of our own subjectivities. Takriti explores gaps in historical memory by merging personal and national narratives, and generating questions around them.
Takriti has participated in many international group exhibitions and festivals, including exhibitions (selected) at Universitätsgalerie im Heiligenkreuzerhof (Austria), Kunsthalle Wien (Austria), Afro Asiatisches Institut (Austria), [.Box] Video Art Project Space (Italy), STIFF Student International Film Festival (Croatia), Stiftung Mercator (Germany), Kunstraum Lakeside (Austria), Centre d’art Sa Quartera (Spain), Addaya Centre for Contemporary Arts (Spain), Krinzinger Lesehaus (Austria) and University of Applied Arts _ Die Angewandte (Austria).
