Nisrine BOUKHARI is a conceptual artist, living in Stockholm & Vienna. In her art-based research projects, she uses the concept of psychogeography and tends to analyse the impact of space on human behaviour and emotions. Since 2012 she is researching on the State of Mind-Wandering as a form of mental diversity through the intersection between art, psychology & neuroscience where she has coined the term Wanderism and announced as a State of Mind. 

With a characteristic economy of means, Boukhari creates sensorial and participatory installations which engage the body as well as the mind. Despite the focus on the body and space, language is playing an essential role in her work and drawing the audience into implication with it. Like the body, language is both personal and the essential prevalence of public relations.

Nisrine Boukhari studied Sculpture in the Faculty of Fine Arts at Damascus University, finished her M.A. in Social Design at Angewandte Kunst Wien (University of Applied Arts Vienna). She is pursuing her art-based research internationally where she had artist residency at Iaspis/Sweden, Trapholt Museum/ Denmark, MAWA art residency Winnipeg/Canada, NKDALE art centre Norway, Art Omi in NYC, and many other residencies. She exhibited her work internationally and locally at MMSU Museum of Modern and Contemporary art at Rijeka/Croatia, Buildmuseet Umea/Sweden, Trapholt Museum Kolding/Denmark, The World Culture Museum Gothenburg/Sweden, The National Museum of Contemporary Art (Museu do Chiado) Lisbon/Portugal, Museet for Samtidskunst, Roskilde/Denmark, Nederlands Fotomuseum Rotterdam/Netherlands, Casoria International Contemporary Art Museum Casoria/Italy, and other places.
