Podcast – Jameel Winner Rachid Koraïchi

The Jameel PrizOne of Koraichi's coth hangingse at the V&A Museum, is awarded to artist Rachid Koraïchi. We discuss the history and aims of the Jameel prize with one of its curators Salma Tuqan, and the winning work with Koraïchi himself (via a translator).

Koraïchi’s sculptures and installations explore a fine range of media such as ceramics, textiles, various metals and paint on silk, paper and canvas. Sufi-born Koraïchi is influenced by an interest in life’s signs – real and imaginary, and his work contains glyphs and ciphers drawn from other cultures, mainly Arabic calligraphic scripts.
