After Clément Cogitore, LE BAL presents the first monographic exhibition devoted to Yasmina Benabderrahmane (1983), winner of the LE BAL Prize for young creation with Adagp and a young artist graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris and from the National Studio of Contemporary Arts Le Fresnoy.
Returning to Morocco after 14 years of absence, Yasmina Benabderrahmane delivers with the Beast a filmic tale, between metaphor and rough fragments, marked by two characters from her family history: Uncle geologist, responsible for “the Beast”, pharaonic work site of new Grand Theater of the Bouregreg valley, and the Grandmother, a little further, in an ancestral village of the Atlas.
In the jerky jolts of film, her work invites us to a sensitive, mineral and instinctive stroll where the upset fate of contemporary Morocco is played out.
