Bio

Written by Mysa Kafil-Hussain

“We can discuss many things but there are some things that cannot be named, nor described and that is what I am trying to show in my work.” Mounir Fatmi[1]

An award-winning multimedia artist, Mounir Fatmi is known for his evocative and delicate explorations of contemporary history, modern society and consumerism through the power of discarded media and technology. Born in Tangiers, Morocco, in 1970, Fatmi spent a great deal of time during his childhood at local flea markets with his mother, who was both a housewife and also sold children’s clothing. Fatmi himself sees that environment – full of objects and waste – as his first artistic lesson, seeing the flea market now almost akin to a museum in ruin, influencing much of his later work. [2] He and his family soon moved to Casablanca, and at a very young age he was inspired by his uncle, a house painter, to embark on an artistic path, much to his family’s dismay.[3] Fatmi, without the blessing of his family, decided to pursue his dream to become a painter, and left Morocco for Rome at the age of 17 to study at the Scuola Libera del Nudo (“Free School of the Nude"), part of the Accademia di Belle Arti.

In 1989, Fatmi returned to Morocco and enrolled into the School of Fine Arts in Casablanca for a short time and also spent time back in Tangiers, where he met artist Mohamed Choukri, who introduced him to American novelist Paul Bowles, through whom Fatmi discovered American literature, which became a source of inspiration later in his career. Later, Fatmi was offered a job as a graphic designer at an advertising agency in Casablanca, an experience which enabled him to explore the possibilities of product design.[4] However, he still continued to produce his own art outside of his work. Following six years in his job, he was promoted to Artistic Director, and shortly afterwards left this role to become a full-time artist.[5] In 1999, Fatmi travelled to France for an artist’s residency, and it was during his time there that he began reading the work of a range of contemporary philosophers, which forced him to interrogate his practice and influenced much of his work, also contemplating vast questions of identity and culture, commenting in 2008 that this period enabled him to transform and focus: “out of exile, I created glasses so I could see.”[6] After returning again to Morocco, Fatmi was offered a government scholarship in 2006, which enabled him to study at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.

Fatmi’s work tackles a range of subjects: from religion and identity, to language and memory, often drifting into confrontations with aspects of consumerist societies and what he considers as “the role of the artist in a society in crisis.”[7] Using machinery, architectural structures and obsolete cables, parts and objects, he explores all of these themes with a raw, stark intensity, creating an occasionally uncomfortable reflection of the world we live in.[8] The objects he finds and utilises form the architecture of his vision, creating fragile landscapes, whilst the objects themselves become reappropriated in a multitude of creative ways – a way for Fatmi to question our commercialist and capitalist identities. Religion, spirituality and its confluence with politics are topics he considers often, and he is especially drawn to conflicting ideas and cultures, examining how different societies diverge and converge.[9] Ultimately, Fatmi is trying to understand the world, and chooses to do that through art.

Growing up in Morocco surrounded by the Arabic language and living within a traditional society, he was acutely aware of the power of the written word. “The only cultural objects in my childhood home were a calligraphic verse of the Qur’an in one frame, and in another, a black and white photograph of the King of Morocco,” explained Fatmi in an interview in 2015.[10] Verses from the Qur’an, and many other phrases and sayings beautifully transcribed in delicate calligraphic forms are prized across the region and it’s no surprise that Fatmi has internalised its aesthetic and spiritual importance throughout his life. One of his main inspirations is Brion Gysin, a British artist, poet and writer who lived and worked in Tangier in the 1950s, and who Fatmi was made aware of by Choukri and Bowles in the early 1990s. Gysin’s approach – called the “cut-up” technique – resonated deeply with Fatmi, specifically finding Gysin’s deconstruction of language particularly powerful.[11] In Fatmi’s two works in the Dalloul Collection – ‘Ceux qui savent et ceux qui ne savent pas’ (2008) and ‘Between the Lines’ (2009) – Fatmi explores both the structural and the spiritual, using script in new and innovative ways. ‘Ceux qui savent et ceux qui ne savent pas’, meaning ‘those who know and those who don't know’ is an intricately assembled large calligraphic composition made from reclaimed antenna cables and ties, with an almost-endless maze-like form, coming together to form sacred words. ‘Between the Lines’ uses three stainless steel saw blades, from afar resembling decorative stamps or seals, with the blades acting as the surfaces for Qur’anic inscriptions, visually manipulated and repurposed, losing much of the words’ original meaning and ultimately functioning as a complex image.[12] He also enjoys the contrast between the intense sharpness, capable of hurting and cutting, and the delicate beauty of the calligraphy and the word of God, claiming that “what I was interested in was how the Quran can be interpreted by different people in both violent and beautiful ways,"[13] truly – as the name of the piece suggests – inviting all to read between the lines. His exploration of language is not only a commentary on religion and materiality, but also a journey into themes of distance, displacement, and a loss of cultural identity, feeling both at home and abroad in his environment: “all these questions speak of exile, of separation, of the impossibility of language, and how difficult the meeting is.”[14]

Fatmi’s work has not been free of controversy, as expected from any artist dissecting religious scripture. In 2012, his works were removed from display in Toulouse, France, when religious groups took issue with his use of Qur’anic verses. Around the same time, the Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris also censored a video Fatmi created depicting Salman Rushdie.[15] However the artist maintains that controversy isn’t his goal: “when I use the Qur’an in my work, what I’m trying to say is that this isn’t just a religious book, it’s a history book. It’s a book which affects everything.”[16]

Over the last twenty years, Fatmi has exhibited his work internationally, including the 52nd and 54th Venice Biennales as well as countless other biennales and festivals across the world. He has also been short-listed for the Jameel Prize (2013) and has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in which his work has been met with both admiration and fascination. Fatmi lives and works between Paris and Tangiers.
