Mustapha Akrim
"Chantier," 2009

[عربي] [English] [italiano]

Mustapha Akrim’s allegorical building tools of monumental scale express the frustrations inherent in work and activity, an amplification of the project he began while in residence at L’appartement 22. Citing the situation of the lack of work, particularly for youth, Akrim also points to the widespread inability faced in grasping the tools available for societal transformation. Akrim’s "Chantier," referencing visualy to Marcel Duchamp’s "Étant Donnés," narrowly defines public space in regard to itself by limiting its possible vantage points.
