MONOGRAPHY OF one of PRECURSOR OF THE contemporay ART IN MOROCCO
Without no doubt Kacimi is one of the most famous Moroccan painter. Beyond the solitude of his studio in Rabat, Kacimi is a social figure committed the evolution of his country. This art book is the first monograph ever published on his works.
For Kacimi, being a nomad allows you to stop being just yourself within the limits of your solitude. A solitude still confronted with the colours of difference yet also with the similarity between human souls. And all this is painted, written, constructed like an image, like a poem whose only message is the representation of one’s self to the world, through the fragility of a body itself committed to being a fragment of the world. A fragility that can be assassinated by the obscurity of those who hold the truths. Kacimi opens his body to this assassin.
