It is a story between two shores, that of Morocco of yesterday, where materials are as close as possible to the earth and bodies, and that of today, between concrete and rocks. It is a tale, where the beast roars and grows up at the foot of the Atlas Mountains. It is a tale told by Yasmina Benabderrahmane, the second winner of the prize at the Young Creation Ball with ADAGP in 2019. In the country of her origins, a few kilometres from Rabat, stands the construction site of a new cultural centre, a pharaonic project decided by the king, the construction of which will shake up the lives of the villagers. Nothing could be more antithetical: the magnification of an architecture with the appearance of a shell that gnaws at the landscape and, facing it, ancestral villages with traditions rooted in the land and in time. In a visual to-and-fro game between the construction site and the customs of his grandmother, the artist seeks to approach detail and materials, symbols of the thwarted change in this contemporary Morocco. A fiction in grey and white, where modern history and the intimacy of the inhabitants are mixed.
