CULTURES INTERFACE – MAROC
INVITED ARTIST – MUSTAPHA AKRIM
CULTURES INTERFACE – PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION OF CONTEMPORARY ART IN CASABLANCA
As well as using its own gallery walls in Casablanca Morocco, CulturesInterface has resolved to become an itinerant gallery travelling throughout Africa, Europe and the Americas. This concept allows it to provide a multitude of services adapted to various places and art works. Through its mobility and flexibility, CulturesInterface participates at biennales and fairs as well as it collaborates with international structures and art galleries having common goals.
Mustapha Akrim’s drawings presented during PAREIDOLIE’s second edition, represent children working in cities or in rural areas. By scratching the drawings on carbon paper, and overlaying two or three drawings on the same sheet of carbon, the artist reinforces the problem of children at work.
In some drawings, Akrim also uses specific articles from the Moroccan Constitution in order to shed light on these existing societal issues.
In his global work, Akrim deals with issues of labor and lack of opportunity within his home country, in particular problems of unemployment, poor education, and a need for freedom of speech.
Excerpts from Article 32 of the 2011 Moroccan Constitution used in Akrim’s drawings :
- (The State) insures equal judicial protection and equal social and moral consideration toward all children, regardless of their family situation
- Fondamental education is a children’s right and a family and State obligation
