Younès Rahmoun

  • Younès Rahmoun

  • Gérard & Kelly

    Khamsa, 2011

    Wednesday 18 october - 8pm
    Duration : 25 minutes

    With his right hand and five sticks Younès Rahmoun seeks different geometric combinations, while filming the action with his left hand. In Khamsa, the camera is part of the action as it interacts with the artist’s body at work. The different ways and methods Younès Rahmoun uses to research shapes and gestures sharpens his sense of the environment and the objects he draws. This is reinforced by his use of dual-purpose materials. For instance, the stick used by the shepherd also serves as a soldier’s weapon. Fascinated by the philosophy and practice of Sufism, the artist includes repetition, incantation, persistence, concentration, perfection, definition, presence and co-presence in his practice.

    In collaboration with Imane Farès, Paris.
