RACHID KORAICHI:
CLAY, SILK PAPER & STEEL

LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM, LONDON
29 JUNE–12 JULY 1998

This first solo show of the leading Algerian artist Rachid Koraichi presents some thirty works in a variety of media.

Koraichi’s visual language is filled with signs, symbols and abstractions: Arabic and Berber characters, talismanic numbers and imagined ideograms merge with contemporary and mystical poetry and secret messages.
