Born in 1966, visual artiste Fatiha Zemmouri is a graduate of the Casablanca School of Fine Arts. Very early in her career she developed interest in materials such as coal, burnt wood, ceramic and porcelain. Fatiha uses each alteration of matter to grow closer to the deeper being. Combustion, laceration, stitching, burning: all steps through which the matter is transformed to reveal itself as it is. Upon completion, the abstraction carry the memory of the black or white monochrome; and the matter, a metaphor of the body, reveals itself to be a life force. Fatiha Zemmouri has participated in many individual and group shows in Morocco and abroad. Her works have integrated important public and private collections.
Many have been his exhibitions in various cities of Morocco and the world, such as Casablanca, Rabat, Marrakech, Paris, Dubai, Dakar, Toulouse, Saint Etienne. His was also the site specific work inside the El Badii building during the 6th edition of the Marrakech Art Biennale in 2016.
