Fatiha Zemmouri
(born in 1966, Morocco)

A visual artist born in 1966, Fatiha Zemmouri graduated from the École des Beaux-Arts in Casablanca. Very early on, she was interested in materials such as coal, calcined wood, ceramics and porcelain.

Fatiha apprehends every alteration of the material as a reconciliation to the profound being. The combustion, the laceration, the suture, the burn, are the many stages that the material goes through to reveal to itself. Once achieved, the abstractions bear the memory of the monochrome within them, whether white or black, and the material, the metaphor of the body, reveals itself as the power of life.
