The work of Lina Ben Rejeb takes the language of notation as a starting point for her explorations. Her research builds on the tensions between visibility and legibility and the serendipitous shapes and patterns revealed through layering and partial obliteration. Employing techniques such as photocopying and painting, Ben Rejeb is interested in the potential and limitations of the process, interpretations are produced through repetitive gestures and the exhaustion of the action.
Ben Rejeb graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Art from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, France in 2011. She received an MA in Curatorial Studies from Paris-Sorbonne University, Paris IV, Paris, France and earned a PhD in Research fine Arts from Paris-Sorbonne University, Paris VIII, Paris, France.
She has been recently exhibited as part of solo exhibition at La Boîte, Tunis, Tunisia / Vincez Sala Gallery, Paris.
In 2020 Ben Rejeb will participate in the Casablanca biennale, curated by Christine Eyene. Ben Rejeb’s work forms part of many prestigious art collections including Galil a Hollander – Brazilaï collection, Brussels Belgium / Kamel Lazaar Foundation, Tunis, Tunisia / Boghossian Foundation, Brussels, Belgium and Patrick Heide Art Projects, Germany and London
