Hanane El Farissi 01

Hanane El Farissi

Graduation year




Hanane El Farissi was born in Morocco in 1990, and now lives and works between Rabat and Brussels. She graduated from the National Institute of Fine Arts – Tétouan (Morocco), the higher visual arts school of La Cambre (Belgium), and is currently studying at the Higher Institute for Fine Arts (HISK) in Gent for a post-graduate degree. Her sculptural work, installations and performances start from objects and everyday gestures. Individual development, what defines them and memory are the heart of her artistic approach. Through diverse mediums, she uses stereotypes and methods of representation, as well as trivial or anecdotal depictions, to question the values that define our contemporary tastes and spirit. Since 2008, Hanane El Farissi’s work has been shown in spaces dedicated to the arts and cultural institutions, including Le Cube-Independent art room, The Museum Mohammed VI, the Bank Al Maghreb Museum in Rabat (MA), the Maison des arts of Schaerbeek, the Fondation Boghossian-Villa empain in Brussels (BE), the Alain Nadaud gallery in Tunis (TN), the Pall Mall-Trafalgar Square in London (GB), the Skrei art center in Porto (PT), the Castel De Drena Trento (IT), the Artothek-Raum fur junge kunst in Cologne (DE) and a forthcoming show at the Town House gallery in Egypt.
