“Those who remain”: Wiame Haddad's photographs at the Cube

Published on 07-18-2016 Agenda

In one of the most sophisticated art galleries of Rabat, a young Moroccan artist offers political and poetic pictures.

After Casablanca, young Moroccan artist Wiame Haddad's photo exhibition “Ceux qui restent” (Those who remain) will be on display at the Cube, a gallery defined as “an independent art room”. This former apartment of 40 m2 has been converted into an art space devoted to the new means of expression of the Moroccan art scene. It is already recognised for its avant-garde displays, which are part of the rebirth of contemporary art in Morocco.

“Those who remain” is up to that reputation. Wiame Haddad explored a dark episode of history in his country, known as the “years of lead”. After two attempted coups d'état, many Moroccan citizens were imprisoned. Half of them never made it back from the jails of Hassan II. With aesthetic and poetic pictures of former political prisoners, Wiame Haddad evokes their absence from society.
