L'Atelier 21's booth is a solo show of more than 30 artworks of artist Safaa Erruas. Her work is characterised by her use of the colour white, which, according to her, symbolises absence, immateriality, transparency and fragility.
Established in 2008, L’Atelier 21 art gallery is considered as one of the most influential places dedicated to promote and spread visual arts in Morocco and abroad. L’Atelier 21 art gallery has chosen to highlight the work of painters who contributed to shape the history of painting in Morocco and to diffuse the interest for contemporary art.
In nine years of activity, L’Atelier 21 art gallery has organized more than fifty exhibitions and participated in several international fairs (Art Paris 2010, Marrakech Art Fair 2010, Art Dubaï 2011, Top 25 2011, Marrakech Art Fair 2011, Art Dubaï 2012, Art Dubaï 2014, YIA Art Fair 2016, AKAA 2016 and 1 :54 London 2016).
The gallery has accomplished a professional work to enforce and promote contemporary art. Moreover, the gallery made the promotion of Moroccan artists abroad one of its main objectives. L‘Atelier 21 art gallery contributes to the 1:54 art fair in order to acknowledge the value of Moroccan artists in the making of an African art scene.
By organizing a solo show, L’Atelier 21 art gallery aims to show the particular place that artist Safaa Erruas occupies in the African continent. In this exhibit, Safaa carries on the path that she has built for more than 20 years - a universe dominated by the color white where fragility and strength engage in a merciless battle.
