Yto Barrada in a residency at L’appartement 22 from 15 December 2009 to 14 February 2010.
Opening on 15 January 2010 at 7 pm
"YTO BARRADA’S PALM PROJECT LOOKS AT THE MARKETING OF MOROCCO AND THE HOMOGENIZATION OF THE COUNTRY’S URBAN AND BOTANICAL LANDSCAPE. THE PROJECT ALSO ASSESSES THE STATUS OF THE PALM TREE, THAT ICON OF EXOTICISM AND SELF-FOLKLORIZATION.
ANY SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE PLANTS DISCUSSED AND MOROCCAN SUBJECTS LIVING OR DEAD ARE PURELY COINCIDENTAL"
Palm Project by Yto Barrada incorporates photography, video, archive and interventions.
