Darra, an exhibition by interdisciplinary Moroccan artist Younès Rahmoun opens at Tiwani Contemporary today.
Thoughts on religion, non-material life and other-worldly human connections are recurrent themes in Rahmoun’s work. He sculpts, paints, photographs and builds symbols, materials and forms of expression to explore and explain the world through what he refers to as “traces of space/time”.
Darra (atom) are objects from ordinary life – chocolate wrappers, blankets, scraps of electric cable – which the artist uses to unpack extraordinary questions about spirituality. The exhibition, Rahmoun’s first solo showing in London is a series of photographic enlargements. Familiar objects made unfamiliar, hanging distantly in white space. Made for viewers to ponder the world around us and our physical and metaphysical being in it.
