Rachid Khimoune at Friedman & Vallois Gallery


Berber in origin, Rachid Khimoune grew up in Paris suburbs, in a housing project. All his work is imbued with this dual cultural heritage, which finds itself in his choices of mixed and found materials and objects.


 

For the first time and in exclusivity, Friedman & Vallois will present the work of French artist Rachid Khimoune from November 8 to December 21, 2012.

Berber in origin, he grew up in Paris suburbs, in a housing project. All his work is imbued with this dual cultural heritage, which finds itself in his choices of mixed and found materials and objects.

On the occasion of this exhibition, Rachid Khimoune will be presenting a recent series of totems, masks, and tortoises. Totems and masks, made during the past five years, evoke Africa and its traditions with humor, assembling disparate scraps of modern life and fusing them into a new identity playing with their initial definitions.

Opening Reception: 8 November 2012, 6-8pm
