Mounir Fatmi commissioned for the FIFA World Cup™ Art Water Bottles project to represent Morocco

Designed by 22 renowned artists from qualifying World Cup countries, Sports, Art and Culture converge to help reduce the environmental impact of plastic waste generated during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ with reusable art water bottles.


Moroccan artist Mounir Fatmi's design was Influenced by the idea of dead media and the collapse of the industrial and consumerist society. He develops a conception of the status of the artwork located somewhere between Archive and Archeology. The artwork Wrigley is inspired by the "zellige", a traditional Moroccan mosaic, that is reflected on water. The work is also inspired by the commitment that Qatar has made to avoid all plastic bottles and waste of water during the football event.
