About:
The Second copy: 2045 is a conceptual performance featuring a documentary made in the year 2045, at which point political conflicts have changed the world to such a degree that the only remnants of art exist in the form of memories. The artist reflects on the dynamics of contemporary Moroccan art and invites the audience into an ambiguous space between realism and fiction. In this performance language, movement and images no longer abide by a logical system, but are able to interact. The aim is to create a new and experimental environment through audience interaction.
