La Bête A Modern Tale (Signed)
Regular price $53
In 2012, Benabderrahmane returned to her home country of Morocco after 12 years, crossing the dunes and plains to create Super-8 films mapping out the ever-changing landscape. The film stills collected in this book invite us to follow the path winding between tradition and modernity. We travel to the Bouregreg Valley, a new cultural centre which symbolizes the modernity and changing physiognomy of ancestral lands. Further afield, we discover the desert plains of Chichaoua, rocky and stripped back, where sleepy villages nestle in a place where time stands still. Benabderrahmane invites us to experience a sensitive, mineral and instinctive Moroccan history, where stones tumble, blood clots and where the artist’s gaze comes to a place at once familiar and ever-changing.
