Bochra Taboubi (1993), a visual artist and product designer studied at the Higher Institute of Fine Arts of Tunis. She is interested in organic shapes, biomimicry and the relationship between Human and Nature.
Nature is always omnipresent in her works since she was a design student. Her interest in the philosophy of the relationship between humans and nature started with her first academic project about biomimetism. She was always looking into her true vocation an well as her interest in nature, that leads her to make her first residency in ‘’ Centre des arts vivants Rades ‘’, where she presents her first art project called ‘Human Abyss’, a surrealistic experience through drawing, animated images, sound effects and music.
Bochra mainly works on artificial life with fictitious creatures to invent her own fabulatory repertoire that is questioning human’s issues. Her works have been featured in Konstfack (Stockholm), Foreign Objekt collective (California), Die Angewandte festival (Vienna), Tashweesh Festival; Goethe Institut Tunesien (Tunis), “Chouftouhonna” the International feminism art festival (Tunis), The National Library (Tunis), “Utopies visuelles” festival (sousse).
