Amina Azreg – Réminiscences Casablancaises, 2022
Works by Amina Azreg combine the solitary interiors of Edward Hopper and surrealism, staging oddities in an architecture that speaks of Casablanca. Immaculate spaces seem empty or forgotten, like the traces of last night’s dreams. Only a few anonymous humans remain at a reception desk that displays a single word: “soleil”, or sun. Here light becomes a subject, whether the “sun” of an overhead fixture, reflection on polished wood or eggshells, a spotlight on a dead egret. Exquisite details - a chrome scale, a wrought-iron balustrade - create a sense of drama, setting the stage for something, anything, nothing.
