Yasmina Benabderrahman

In these familiar spaces and bodies where the unsettled history of contemporary Morocco plays out, Yasmina Benabderrahmane focuses on details and textures, and on hands that shape, enact and reproduce the same gestures over and over, throughout the course of time. In the halting upheavals of film, Yasmina Benabderrahmane’s work leads us to a sensitive, mineral, instinctive vision of Moroccan history, with dripping stones and coagulated blood, and where the artist’s gaze is posed upon the intimacy of passing time. Yasmina Benabderrahmane was born in 1983 in Rueil-Malmaison. Graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2009 and of the Studio national des arts contemporains Le Fresnoy in 2015, her work has been the subject of several group exhibitions, including at the 54th contemporary art fair of the city of Montrouge in 2009, and the YoungCréeation fair in 2013 at the CENTQUATRE, Paris.
