Dignité (Dignity)

Anamorphosis - acrylic on wall - 30 x 9 m


Exhibition « dignité »

French Institute, Rabat, 2010



Working on the theme of dignity with other artists has always meant a lot to me. The challenge of a collaboration on this abstract, ambiguous and fluctuating subject was a means of replacing the human being at the core of artistic research. It was also a way to offer to the passers-by, the visitors of the exhibition, the children with whom we worked, a part of our reflexion. 




In order to respect others, you need to respect yourself first. Dignity is an attitude which stems from the feeling of our own proper value. It shapes moral and ethics in societies. It’s a way to a better world.



My first work on this subject was an anamorphosis painted on a 30-meter long wall, the picture of a young Moroccan woman, her hands open, gazing down at people in the street below. It represents hope for a better humanity, as well as tolerance and fraternity. It’s like a prayer, not toward God but toward men and women who look at her, asking for a more respectful and tolerant world.
