L’appartement 22 presents an enconter with Grace Nidiritu for the launch of the second part of the exhibition RIF POST-RESIDENCIES / EXPEDITIONS. For the fourth edition of A Quest For Meaning (AQFM), Ndiritu has decided to use materials from the earlier volumes AQFM Vol. 1 and AQFM Vol. 2 of the project in MACBA, Barcelona, and La Ira De Dios Buenos Aires as a conceptual and formal framework for the new installation in L’appartement22, Rabat and bring the AQFM periodical newspaper back from its journeys abroad to where it first started in Morocco when Grace Ndiritu participated in a residency at L’appartement 22 in collaboration with MACBA, Barcelona.

For the fourth edition of A Quest For Meaning (AQFM), Ndiritu has decided to use materials from the earlier volumes AQFM Vol. 1 and AQFM Vol. 2 of the project in MACBA, Barcelona and La Ira De Dios, Buenos Aires as a conceptual and formal framework for the new installation in Rabat and bring the AQFM periodical newspaper back from its journeys abroad to where it first started in Morocco when Grace Ndiritu participated in a residency at L’appartement 22 in collaboration with MACBA, Barcelona in December 2013.

This new installation uses the Moroccan political context to discuss architecture and design within a domestic space using the window as a transitional border to reflect upon issues of public spaces in a politically charged atmosphere i.e. opposite L’appartement 22 stands the Parliament where public demonstrations take place and can be seen from the balcony and window

The L’appartement 22 installation also uses visual props from the previous installation in Buenos Aires in an industrial space, and references the menacing symbol of the smiley face within the warehouse party context, signifying a new Generation 00 of ’artistic ravers’ entering the art world to usurp the authority of the art market.
