Zemmouri, Fatiha
Born 1966 in Casablanca, Morocco
Lives and works in Marrakech and Casablanca, Morocco
Fatiha Zemmouri is deeply concerned with the exploration of materials, ranging from coal and charred wood to ceramic and porcelain. This focus on materiality allows for a visual representation of the various phases of human mutation and the cycle of life. The symbolism of material allows Zemmouri to examine universal concerns related to humanity, to the tragedy inherent to existence and questions related to man’s finitude. Zemmouri’s work has been exhibited extensively both in Morocco and abroad. Recent exhibitions include Material Insanity, Musée d’Art Contemporain Africain Al Maaden (MACAAL), Marrakech (2019); AKKAL, CDG Foundation, Rabat (2018) and Traversées, Crossings, عبور, Comptoir des Mines Galerie, Marrakech (2018).
