A native of Tangier, Houda Terjuman translates his history into the richness of her Moroccan, Syrian, Turkish, Italian and Irish heritage. She draws her strength from her multiculturalism, her great creativity, and she expresses herself through love, trials and all of her life experiences.
If Houda Terjuman chose to replace the canvas and the brush with sculpture, the artist will have given life to a new artistic form through floating, living sculptures, which have the capacity to occupy space without filling it. "Sculpture is a discipline that requires a lot of patience, a lot of hours of work, but above all, a lot of love ... A love for the idea, for the work, the message and the unknown who one day will discover it" says the artist. Sculpture is a slow but sure process, and it can take months between crafting a drawing and making the work. Houda Terjuman observes the world around her and transcribes it with great tenderness through bits of land, roots, objects left behind, books, trees or ruins. Despite the sensitivity of the subject, the pain that ensues, the work of Houda Terjuman remains positive and generous, it immortalizes a moment of happiness captured by the artist, a moment of peace, a good memory, a green earth, a joy interior, a simple and sincere happiness.
