I am a Moroccan visual artist based in Helsinki. I received my artistic training in both Morocco and Finland. This geographic and cultural shift has had an evident impact on my work. My art uses various-mediums such as  sculptures, installations, performances, paintings and videos focus on digital communication, freedom of movement and power relations in our globalized world. My aim interested in the actual state of things, and focuses on revisiting assumptions that govern behaviour, shaping our way of thinking and doing. I’m interested in the power of artistic practices to create reality and generate political imagination. I operates with various mediums to visualize communication between individuals in a relation to society for instance, ever-increasing gaps in wealth, socio-cultural differences, social-struggles, race issues, labor conditions, educational opportunities — the conditions that determine one’s level of comfort and stability in society.

I have spent a major part of my life, about past years, trying to understand the meaning of art and culture, and I always find myself returning to the root of the question. One of the essential things I have noticed in art and culture is the concept of coexistence. I use my cross-cultural background to challenge audience to explore the conceptions of belongingness of the human nature as a research between Art, Culture, Technology and Politics. My aim as an artist is to develop and extend the mental borders of interactive artworks.
