Sculpture - Installation - Drawing - Video
Younès Rahmoun’s artistic practice is both polymorphous and minimalistic. His works are inseparable from his religious and spiritual beliefs. Installations, site-specific artworks, drawings, videos, animations, photographs and performances allow him to make visible the invisible and to encourage moments of meditation. Each material, number, orientation, colour has a deep meaning, often related to Islam and to Sufism in particular.
His interest lies in vital essences such as the heart, atom, seed, flower and light. At the International Centre for Glass Art (CIAV) in Meisenthal he created Zahra Zoujaj, a monumental installation made of 77 hand-blown glass lamps shaped as flowers. The black plastic bag, spiral, shroud fabric, minerals, nature, Ghorfa (small room in Arabic) all appear as leitmotiv. Younès Rahmoun is one of the most important Moroccan artists of his generation. For a few years, he has directed a workshop program at the National Institute of Fine Arts of Tetouan (INBA).
