About Fatiha Zemmouri
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 meta- phor 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 inte- grated important public and private collections.
