Tentoonstelling Intranquillités

 

[vertaald van eflux]
Nieuwsgierigheid, vrijheid van mening en de zoektocht naar de orgine van het kruis (geloof) drijven de 3 Marokaanse kunstenaars op deze expositie in Brussel. Om hun doel te bereiken stellen ze zichzelf vragen en ontleden de realiteit van alle dag om deze beter te begrijpen om deze beter te maken [wat een mooi doel!] De wereld is out-of-control, losgeslagen, alleen door ons zelf vragen te stellen, waakzaam te blijven, actief onze nieuwsgierigheid te blijven opzoeken en hierover met elkaar in gesprek te gaan kunnen we met ons geweten blijven leven [beetje Bijbels voor genieten van het leven, zou ik zeggen]

Mooi beeld van een van de werken. Zou het hier in Rotterdam op een plein werken?

Niquer la mort – Fuck the death, Mohamed El baz

[vanaf eflux]

Intranquillités… This title, borrowed from Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, evokes a state of anxiety, restlessness, even insecurity. Yet the idea behind the title differs completely insofar as it represents a call for alertness, for keeping senses and sensibility awake. Curiosity (as a tool for emancipation), free speech and the quest for crosses’ origins drive this group exhibit. This attitude cultivated by these three artists falls perfectly within the framework of the cultural policy led by B.P.S.22 for the past twelve years.

The works of Charif Benhelima, Mohamed El Baz and mounir fatmi draw their motivation from the curiosity and the will to know and to understand the situations that we live and see every day in our globalized world. To reach their goal, the artists question and deconstruct the reality built by the media before transforming it to better understand it. Facing a world out of control, all three invite us to stand still and remain vigilant and constantly activate this unquiet curiosity that alone guarantees our conscience.

Through their works, these artists offer the audience an opportunity to speak freely, which sometimes proves unsettling, albeit free of pretences. This highly socio-political intent finds its expression in various forms of works: photographs, videos, installations, etc… that draw their sources in different cultures. The personal quest of these three Moroccan artists remains omnipresent and drove them to question the notions of identity, culture, nationality, frontiers, belonging, of Foreigner, of the Other.

For this exhibition at B.P.S.22, the option consists of presenting works by each artist and articulated around new, specific productions. Amongst the latter, Sleep Al Naim–For Salman Rushdie by mounir fatmi makes its world premiere. The whole makes a choreography inside which the works resonate.
