LB2018 Snapshot: Mohamed Bourouissa

Artist Mohamed Bourouissa is collaborating with Granby Four Streets CLT and Kingsley Community Primary School in Granby to create a ‘healing’ garden in the heart of Toxteth for Liverpool Biennial 2018. The project is inspired by a garden made by a patient of the psychoanalyst and writer Frantz Fanon at a psychiatric hospital in Algeria. Fanon proved that the failure of occupational therapy in the country was caused by lack of consideration of the patients’ societal background.

Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you? takes place from 14 July – 28 October across the city’s public spaces, galleries, museums and civic buildings.
