Rafika Ferchichi was born in Tunis in 1978. She graduated in sculpture and is currently enrolled in the two-year specialisation course in new technologies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bari.
In her research she can be described as versatile, through the systematic use of sculpture, installation and performance.
