‘Mapping the ways in which traumatic experiences inform and reform across geographies and generations, and how the personal becomes the political’.

About

[Un]Reliable Witness exhibition -

Inherited memory and intergenerational trauma are phenomena experienced by descendants of those having witnessed, su ered, or perpetrated extreme experiences;
war, genocide, or abuse.


In ‘[Un]Reliable Witness’ DOM BOUFFARD draws on his own experience as the child of an ALGERIAN WAR refugee to give shape to this post-memory. In an immersive entanglement of sculpture, drawing, video, and interactive sound installation, Bou ard creates a space in which to connect and re ect, while confronting the volatile relationship between the personal and the political in an era of global con ict.

Dom Bouffard is an Anglo-French-Algerian artist and composer whose practice combines sound, sculpture, drawing, text, video and performance.
A self taught musician, in the early 2000’s he was a member of the UK alternative rock bands SONA FARIQ and QUEEN ADREENA, later working with LOU REED, RUFUS WAIN- WRIGHT and COCO ROSIE. He has collaborated on numerous projects with legendary theatre artist ROBERT WILSON, including ‘FLYING’ – a video portrait of LADY GAGA which was exhibited in the Musйe du Louvre. His radio works have garnered critical acclaim, being shortlisted for the KARL SZCUKA and KRIEGSBLINDEN prizes and his compositions have been performed by major interpreters including LUDI QUARTET KERNOW and SERGIO SORRENTINO.
His drawings are currently in private collections throughout the UK, Europe and the US.
