Observe / Reverse at Biennale de Rabat

Zoulikha Bouabdellah presents Observe / Reverse at Biennale de Rabat. The artwork consists of an overlay of scenes inspired by paintings that made a mark on art history: Olympia by Edouard Manet (1863), Gabrielle d’Estrées and one of her sisters by the School of Fontainebleau (1594) and The Three Graces by Raphael (1505). The video project prolongs a work of visual art undertaken two years ago. The starting point was a series of collages made from reproductions of orientalist paintings. Each image, which is part of a painting, is cut out according to the traditional pattern of oriental rugs, which include a border, a field, spandrels and a central medallion.
