Badi Rezzak (b. 1990, Nice, France) lives and works in Brussels. He studied both at Villa Arson (Nice) and L’ERG (School of Graphic Research, Brussels), and works with performance, sculpture and painting. The body and sports are the undercurrents defining his practice and research, aimed at questioning notions such as masculinity and orientalism. Rezzak collects gestures, movements, attitudes, colours, fabrics and forms, which he appropriates and rearranges to explore the associations that go with them. On show: In his ongoing series Fleurs de stade, he transforms sun-bleached footballs into colourful, burguoining flowers, reminiscent of the languid agaves in the warm regions of the French Riviera.
