Nour-Eddine Jarram

In my work, Islamic calligraphy, Dutch painting from the Golden Age, biblical figures and surrealistic patterns exist side by side with gripping images of refugees and Moroccan youth.

It is a search for a balance between figuration and the influence of the Moroccan decorative abstract visual culture. I want to reconsider history by creating the images that change our look at the past.

In the Refugees series I show people who are fleeing. The point of departure is usually based on photos that I manage to turn into a kind of vision from a dream, stripped as it were from the straightjacket of the rigid image of the photo. With this I want to emphasize that the exodus, whether it is physical or cultural, is always also a mental exodus. An exodus that has the possibility of becoming a memory. It shows people in their sometimes daily struggle with reality.
