02 works, MIDDLE EASTERN ART, With Footnotes - 40

Mounir Fatmi, Moroccan
Across the moon
B&W video, HD, stereo, 11’33’’

Mounir Fatmi, Moroccan, b. 1970,  examines human vulnerability. He constructs visual environments (comprising such objects as saw blades, stereo speakers, construction hard hats, and flags) and plays with language in a way that questions preconceptions of politics and religion and unearths injustices buried by history. In his 2009 work The Machinery, 30 aggressive-looking industrial saw blades are inscribed with elaborately drawn Islamic poems relaying a peaceful message. Using current events as content for projects, Fatmi investigates the origins of contemporary issues and crises. More on Mounir Fatmi
