Presentation I’m a young artist born in Casablanca, Morocco (1986). Living between Paris, Casablanca and Tel Aviv. I’ve graduated photography school “Les Gobelins” in 2010 and “L’école des Beaux Arts de Paris” in 2012. I’ve been working as a freelancer since 2010. I’m working on projects dealing with questions about borders, territories and sacrality.

to conceive Designed for the exhibition space,

light installation emphasises the idea of border crossing from four cardinal this

points. This project faces the audience to a response, arounsing curiostity and putting the visitor into the situation of a traveller, crossing a space whose access had been

forbiden by a signalisation on the floor forcing the the visitor to transgress the space rules.

It seemed the people of Palestine wanted to talk to me. Not to the american, not to the indian, not the other people that were with us. When i was in the knafe place the people were intrigated. They shook my hand, they called me, they came and told me their name, they wanted to know me as much as i wanted to know them, they invited me to their place, they gave me food, they put theirs ideas into me. I dreamed, i came to israel to tell the people. Ive been hanging out with beautiful people. I met a girl in Ramallah who was life itself and it frightened me. I thought i was unable to meet the people, not to frighten them, not to loose them, not to get their fear mirrored and be accepted.
