EXHIBITIONS

Comptoir des Mines Galerie is a new contemporary art center based in Marrakech, Morocco.

Comptoir des Mines Galerie is a permanent art space where several exhibitions are held all year round. It aspires to work alongside the best artists on the continent, helping them carry out their projects and giving them the greatest possible visibility.
Its programming promotes different forms of cultural interactions, through exhibitions as well as “carte blanche” and residency programs. In order to promote research and creation, several studio apartments are made available for artists.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

Exhibition Fatiha Zemmouri
From February 20th, 2020 to May 07th, 2020

In 2018, on the occasion of “Traversée”, the first major collective exhibition at Comptoir des Mines, Fatiha Zemmouri invited the public to discover a field of wheat that she had recreated in an apartment in the gallery, and that she had titled “Junction”. This large conceptual installation came to deconstruct the pre-established idea that our mind develops when approaching a place, a territory or a border to invent new perceptions around an intimate shelter, in order to achieve what Bachelard designates as “Equivocal space”. Today, we are happy to collaborate with her again in order to present her large exhibition “Intra-muros”, which addresses a growing preoccupation of our time: the construction, almost everywhere on the planet, of walls of separation to stem or regulate migratory movements instead of intervening to save and help humans.

FATIHA ZEMMOURI

Born in 1966, Fatiha Zemmouri gratuated from the Casablanca School of Fine Art. She became quickly interested in raw materials such as coal, calcined wood, ceramics and even porcelain. The artist combines different techniques such as drawing, collages, painting or sculpture. As a true alchemist of matter, Fatiha Zemmouri explores and transforms materials to give body to poetic works that challenge us on our ambivalences as well as on our evolution and our participation in universal consciousness. Fatiha Zemmouri held several personal and group exhibitions in Morocco and abroad. Her works are part of important public and private collections. Fatiha Zemmouri lives and works between Casablanca and Tahanaout. After he was turned back to Morocco, he resumed his studies and the joined the National Institut of Fine Arts in Tetouan, where he graduated in 2009. Mohamed Arejdal had been able to lay the foundations for a multidisciplinary practice through which he explores the linkages between social groups as part of his travels and human interactions. His artistic performances hold a very important place in his work and help him engage the public on his status as an artist or on the meaning of powefrul symbols.
