The KE’CH Collective http://www.kech-collective.com/

presents swap2016 where artists from Morocco and Switzerland exhibit their collective artistic analysis on European and North African identity within a swap2016-Laboratoire de la Mondialité.

The project Embroiderers of Actuality http://embroiderers-of-actuality.com,

by Aglaia Haritz  and Abdelaziz Zerrou has been invited for the exhibition « swap2016-laboratoire de la mondialité » at the Marrakech Biennale 6.

For the exhibition we collaborate with the Berber women’s cooperation Yagour for the production of rugs in Tighdouine, 1 h from Marrakech. It takes almost a month for the women to knit the rug. While knitting the signs of a drawing of 1670, representing the Moroccan dress from the point of view of Jan Luyken, a Dutch engraver living and working during the European wars of religion, the artists analysed the drawing with the women discussing different topics, for instance the situation of women in Arabic countries. The conversations are documented and filmed. The video can be seen sitting on the knitted carpet at the exhibition Riad Larouss, 187 Rue Riad Larouss, Marrakech until 8.5.2016.
