Badr El Hammami is in residence, in order to finalise the production of his artistic proposition for the new edition of Etats d’Urgence d’Instants Poétiques.
The second edition of Etats d’Urgence d’Instants Poétiques is focused on art, environment and the appropriation of the public space by citizens
From October 25 to November 16, the garden of botanical testing, in Rabat, becomes an exhibition site, a theatre and inspirational place.
The artworks that are presented in the space were all created in situ and conceived in a way that they would blend with the environment, as an extension of the natural ecosystem that makes the space.
In this kind of atmosphere where art and nature become one and the same, visitors from Rabat, Salé and elsewhere are invited for this poetic interlude, to reappropriate the public space that becomes theirs, to discover or rediscover the garden of botanical testing under another light.
With the leadership of Bouchra Salih, director and founder of this project Etat d’Urgence d’Instants Poétiques is an invitation to reconcile art and nature, take a new look on an outwall creation, to question the relation that connects artworks, the space and the public.
In this dynamic, Bouchra Salih invites artists Amina Agueznay, Driss Aroussi, Kamal Aadissa, Nassim Azarzar, Khalid El Bestrioui, Badr El Hammami, Abdellah El Hassak, Simohammed Fettaka, Jamila Lamrani, Lina Laraki, Mohamed Mourabiti, Younès Rahmoun et Nazha Rhondali, to create new peices.
This initiative is about rounding up the diversity of outwall artistic practices, and to make of the garden of botanical testing a space for in situ creation, and a laboratory for inventivity and fusion.
Etat d’Urgence d’Instants Poétiques is a program organized by Fotografi’Art and supported by la Wilaya of Rabat Salé Kénitra, the National Institute of Agronomic Research, l’Institut Français du Maroc, Le Cube – indépendant art room and Sortir Rabat.
