Diary of the Bled

June 13th – October 15th 2013

For La Chambre Claire inaugural exhibition, Fondation Alliances exhibited the diary of Merji which seems surreal at first glance, in that it makes the ordinary and the fantasy cohabit, by incorporating recognizable and yet unexpected details into identifiable Moroccan urban and rural landscapes.

But Merji who claims to be a hyper-realistic artist as his shots “do not result from a language of the unconscious or the dream, but of the awareness of reality” refer us to our own perception conditions, to our own reality.
