Mohamed Bourouissa's multidisciplinary practice is based on intensive collaborations and exchanges with groups and individuals who become both the source and the subject of his work – photographs, sculptures, installations, drawings and videos – through which peripheral places and marginalized groups become a mirror of the state of a society. Bourouissa's new video work LINK (2019) takes the artist to a similarly peripheral space, and approaches the tabooed and simultaneously omnipresent practice of virtual sexuality. The semi-documentary work looks at video-chat forums and humanoid latex dolls that not only promise the fulfillment of physical pleasure, but also become places for projection of and longing for emotional intimacy. Bourouissa discusses the bivalent relationship between humans and technical things that insistently surround us, and raises the question of whether and to what extent physical-emotional experience today shifts to an immaterial as well as anonymous sphere.
