Exhibition: Acrobatie and the Hole Event

Exhibition: Acrobatie and the Hole

Description

This exhibition by artist and photographer Hicham Benohoud focuses on everyday inhabitants of Marrakech in their homes. In Acrobatie, acrobats perform acrobatic feats in their living rooms with their families, and in The Hole, people and their body parts emerge from temporary holes inside their homes. Hicham Benohoud was born in 1968 in Marrakech. He lives in Paris, Casablanca and Marrakech. After graduating with a high school diploma in plastic arts at the age of nineteen, Benohoud continued his studies at Marrakech Regional Pedagogical Centre to learn to teach plastic arts in schools. However, he found teaching to be incompatible with his vocation as an artist and left the profession to join the Galerie VU in Paris. He has taught photography at Le Fresnoy, the National Studio of Contemporary Arts at Tourcoing in France. To celebrate the opening of the exhibition on Wed 30 Oct at 7pm, Africa in Motion have curated a programme of shorts that explore architecture and how bodies move through them. Featuring city scapes and urban space, these experimental shorts are set in Casablanca and Marrakech.
