Younès Rahmoun — Darra
Past: October 18, 2012 → January 26, 2013
The Imane Farès Gallery announce its upcoming exhibition dedicated to the work of the artist Younès Rahmoun, who will present some unpublished works for the occasion.
The Moroccan artist Younès Rahmoun has developed a multi-faceted oeuvre, blending influences from the private universe of his own origins, beliefs and experiences. Setting forth a vocabulary of numbers, of colors and of forms, the artist creates works whose poetic function and formal beauty echo an honest quest for universality.
When I was a child, I dreamed of becoming a sailor, so that I could travel around the world. Today, I am not a sailor but an artist, which sort of comes back to the same thing.
Younès Rahmoun, 2010
At the Imane Farès Gallery in Paris, Younès Rahmoun presents two definitive works exploring the themes of the personal itinerary and internal voyage. Exhibited here for the first time, the photographs from the series entitled Darra constitute “traces of space/time”. They are condensed capsules of real life, linking the artist’s intimate sphere with the outside world and what it offers in terms of encounters and experiences. The animated film Zahra is, according to him, a gentle invitation to contemplation and meditation, a languorous voyage to the heart of a delicately colored, poetic universe, inspired by the beliefs of the artist.
