FATIHA ZEMMOURI 2016

April 2016 - The prestigious Dubai-based ARTSPACE Gallery will hold an exhibit for Moroccan Artist Fatiha Zemmouri titled Vibrations. Artspace is committed to the promotion of modern and contemporary Middle Eastern art and artists.

Born in 1966, visual artist Fatiha Zemmouri is a graduate of the Casablanca School of Fine Arts. Very early in her career she developed interest in materials such as coal, burnt wood, ceramic, and porcelain.

Fatiha uses each alteration of matter to grow closer to the deeper being. Combustion, laceration, stitching, burning: all steps through which the matter is transformed to reveal itself as it is. Upon completion, the abstractions carry the memory of the black or white monochrome; and the matter, a metaphor of the body, reveals itself to be a life force.

Fatiha Zemmouri has participated in many individual and group shows in Morocco and abroad. Her works have integrated important public and private collections.

Tension of gesture, tension between materials; this is what characterizes the work of Fatiha Zemmouri.

Materials of poetry, memory, and architecture as she defines them; each one a pretext to evoke the power of the materials to transformthemselves; to transform and to question us about not only their plastic qualities but also their symbolic power. Fatiha uses each alteration of matter to grow closer to the deeper being. Combustion, laceration, stitching, burning; all steps through which the matter is

Transformed to reveal itself as it is.

Upon completion, the abstractions carry the memory of the black or white monochrome, and the matter, a metaphor of the body, reveals itself to be a life force.
