Mounir Fatmi constructs visual spaces and linguistic games. His work deals with the desecration of religious objects, deconstruction and the end of dogmas and ideologies. With a particular interest in the idea of death of the subject of consumption, Fatmi’s videos, installations, drawings, paintings and sculptures bring to light our doubts, fears and desires, addressing directly the current events of our world.
Fatmi’s work has been exhibited numerous institutions, including the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; The Brooklyn Museum, New York; N.B.K., Berlin; MAXXI, Rome; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; Museum on the Seam, Jerusalem; Moscow Museum of Modern Art, Moscow; Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art, Doha; and the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. He has been also selected in Biennials such as the 52nd and 54th Venice Biennial; the 8th biennial of Sharjah; the 5th and 7th Dakar Biennial; the 5th Gwangju Biennial; the 10th Lyon Biennial; the 5th Auckland Triennial; Fotofest Houston; and the 10th Bamako Encounters.
