Redouane Arraoui, a young Rabati artist, makes use of sounds and videos as material for his work, whereas the work of Mustapha Akrim, a Slawi artist, deals with space and memory. The latter’s work reflects a new Moroccan artistic way of thinking.
On the occasion of their residency at Le Cube – independent art room, these two young artists, still studying in the National Institute of Fine Arts, in Tetouan, establish a real laboratory of artistic research on image and sound as an original plastic material. Thusly, their project develops a new language in order to redefine the creation of the visual arts in Morocco, breaking away from conventional aesthetics.
The exhibition, being the outcome of their residency, revolves around the installation Random Access. The latter suggests a description of the sound formation of any applied musical culture, by translating it, first, into a “plastic video mold” that comprises several disordered sequences.
