سيداتي، سادتي،

تحية طيبة،

نتشرف بدعوتكم لحضور المعرض الفني 0.2 لكوينز كوليكتيف.

كوينز كوليكتيف، مساحة فنية مشتركة توفر إقامات للفنانين الدوليين والمحليين.

كوينز كوليكتيف هي بمثابة جسر بين المجتمعات الفنية.

بيت، مجتمع أفراد وظرف زمان حيث يشارك أعضائه من مختلف الأقطار تجاربَهم ويقدمون أعمالا جماعية من خلال معارض، لقاءات، فنون أداء، أشكال تعاون فني، ورشات ومشاريع اجتماعية.

كجماعة فنية، يتقاسم أعضاءها رؤية مشتركة واهتماما بالعمل الثقافي، النسوية، الالتزام المجتمعي وكذا البحث الفني.

لقد تم دعوة 6 فنانين منذ فاتح شتنبر 2017 من أجل عضوية مؤقتة لمدة خمسة أشهر في كوينز كوليكتيف.

من خلال هذا المعرض الجماعي، سيقوم الفنانون بمشاركة تجاربهم وأفكارهم، تلك البذور التي زرعوها أثناء عملهم في إطار الإقامة وكذلك مجتمع عيشهم في مراكش.

يمثل هذا الظهور آخر معرض للفنانين المقيمين حاليا في كوينز كوليكتيف.

Irfan Ahmed

Blending the world of computer programming with storytelling, the artist is creating an aural world in which the audience can become immersed and can interact with in order to choose how the story progresses.
In this fictional world set in the future humans have begun augmenting with machines. Individuals are implanted with an artificial intelligence conscience (conscaince) which regulates individual decisions in order to benefit the larger community. Is this the next evolutionary step towards collective responsibility? Or could it become another means to restrict freedom?

Are these Irreplaceable Objects ?
Assemblage & Intervention

Irreplaceable Objects is a term that reflects the ubiquitous way in which institutions valuate objects. Yet there remains more to investigate about how Irreplaceable Objects involves aesthetics, colonization, memory, politics and identity.

A work between collage, bricolage, garbology and poetry.
