The square from below

This project was inspired by the geographic location of the artist’s studio which overlooks an abandoned space in the heart of Casablanca, the former “Légal et Frère” factory. It could be the kind of view found in many different cities; locations damaged by time and left behind by the ongoing striving for modernity: Algiers, Tunis, Beirut, Cairo… While this perspective is a denouncement of society failures, it also arouses dreams of what new function can be imagined for this specific space.
