Amina Azreg – Off-peak hour at Le Dauphin, 2022
Amina Azreg creates a poetry of the gaze, imbued with mystery and memories, which shakes up our feelings. The canvas is a journey towards past times, still present, perhaps. Torn between different emotions, between the real and the imaginary, it is Casablanca that is represented and more widely the contemporary world and its history.
Confined to inner worlds, the symbols of the city emerge in the paradox between what has been and what remains. Realism then merges into the strange and the disappearing. The artist accentuates certain features to erase others, painting becoming the means of underlining and bringing back buried sensations. The dramatization of the settings becomes for her a means to elaborate a universe inscribed in timelessness.
