HICHAM BERRADA N9
ARTIST INVITED BY PALAIS DE TOKYO, PARIS
PARTNER MUNICIPALITY > MERVILLE-FRANCEVILLE
PARTICIPATING PRIMARY SCHOOL > ÉCOLE DE MERVILLE-FRANCEVILLE
Born in 1986, he lives and works in Paris.
With his dual training in the arts and in science, Hicham Berrada approaches artistic creation at the crossroads of these two disciplines. Part studio experiment, part laboratory experiment, his work takes the form of filmed performances whose result appears to create a world as much as it is to present an imaginary and pictorial vision. Berrada employs the elements, chemical products, fluids and magnetic fields, bringing up to date in his own fashion the laboratory work long practised by painters grinding and mixing colours in their studio. Joining knowledge and intuition, scientific experiments and poetry, his work explores our relations with the environment and offers a vision of nature that flirts with the supernatural.
