Abdelaziz Zerrou is born in Casablanca in 1982.
He lives and works between Switzerland and Morocco.
Graduate of l’Institut National des Beaux-Arts in Tetouan, Abdelaziz Zerrou is a multidisciplinary artist. He works with video, installation and drawing while using innovative techniques. He engages in an artistic approach of a contemporary orientation: in his protocol of creation, he mobilizes most often a diversity of materials, but what the artist likes most of all, is the graphic register.
The interest in this visual element demonstrates a strong propensity that the artist has for universal symbolic figures characterized by a better readability and visibility, because generally treated schematically and graphically. In his works, the artist aims for a certain visual efficiency and its enunciation has to be obvious, clear and immediately perceptible.
Indeed, his plastic proposal combines all the qualities of a work that seeks to operate effectively, even at the risk of being perceived as simplistic. The artist uses symbolic icons of superstition strongly rooted in Moroccan popular culture to represent and propose a different perspective.
His work and his artistic interventions are shown on a national and international scale: He exhibited his works in Spazio 1929 (Lugano,Switzerland) ; Musée de la Photographie et des Arts visuels (Marrakesh, Morocco) ; Fabbrica del Vapore (Milan, Italy) ; Musée Mohammed VI d’Art Moderne et Contemporain (Rabat, Morocco) ; Galleria Continua (Le Moulin, France) ; Musée New Art Exchange (Nottingham, England).
