Coming from a mixed culture ( Moroccan and Austrian ) background and having lived in various countries from an early age, translates for Malika into a position neither here nor there, nor on the fringes, feeling foreign and belonging in many places and none at the same time, a notion she learned to exploit as a photographer. The idea of home, identity and our place in and with the world is for her a fertile ground for investigation. As the artist is driven by a propensity for optimism and hopefulness, her artworks speak volumes about this state of mind. She draws from holistic personal view of the world, where she detects links between, similarities, common wisdom and shared mythologies rather than differences and boundaries.
Malika is also a personal trainer, holistic lifestyle coach, Kettlebell athlete and skydiver camerawoman. She also did a Ted Talk in 2013 in Casablanca
