Unfortunately, the vernissage "Résistance Naturelle" has been cancelled!


Visual artist Abdessamad El Montassir lives and works between Marseille and Boujdour, Morocco.
For Salam Orient he is coming to Vienna, for an artist residency at the art space philomena+. From March 18 to 29, 2022, he will present the exhibition Résistance Naturelle as part of Foto Wien.

In his sensitive works he deals with the complex socio-political history of his homeland, the Sahara in southern Morocco. Using cartography that the artist creates through archiving plants, poetry, rock formations, etc., he tells alternative stories, so-called micro-stories, that have been overshadowed or even obliterated by the official narrative. The exhibition "Résistance Naturelle" will present individual research projects by El Montassir using photography, sketches and sound recordings that reflect the processual nature of his work.
