Lives & Works in Marrakech, Morocco
Amine El Gotaibi’s work is characterised by the use of natural materials such as wool, earth, and metal, which he uses to represent the historical and contemporary issues facing the Maghreb, and Africa more broadly. El Gotaibi innovates and experiments with mediums to represent the need for change in what he perceives to be a stagnant society.
His "Visit to Okavango" project has shaped his entire approach since 2011. El Gotaibi has since travelled across Africa to “meet his own continent” through participating in various fairs and biennales, such as Congo Biennale Kinshasa, 2019 and Nirox Foundation residency Johannesburg, 2020. Before this, his work was exhibited widely, including at MMVI Rabat, Institut du monde arabe in Paris, and at 1-54 Marrakesh, Morocco.
Amine El Gotaibi will be presented by MCC Gallery.
