About the work
Mounir Fatmi
Moroccan, b. 1970
Follow

Working in video, installation, drawing, painting, and sculpture, Mounir Fatmi examines human vulnerability. He constructs visual environments (comprising such objects as saw blades, stereo speakers, construction hard hats, and flags) and plays with language in a way that questions preconceptions of politics and religion and unearths injustices buried by history. In his 2009 work The Machinery, 30 aggressive-looking industrial saw blades are inscribed with elaborately drawn Islamic poems relaying a peaceful message. Using current events as content for projects, Fatmi investigates the origins of contemporary issues and crises.
