Mounir Fatmi in TL Magazine

Blaire Dessent, TL Magazine

Blaire Dessent interviews Paris-based contemporary artist Mounir Fatmi for TL Magazine, discussing his practice, inspiration and his recent installation made in Japan for the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennale.


"Ever since he was a child, Mounir Fatmi has been curious about the transformation of objects - how, with a slight change of context or position, they can take on entirely new meanings. As a contemporary artist, he regularly goes "back into the archive" of both his own personal memory and our collective history, transforming materials into a highly charged body of work, and slyly subversive reflections on contemporary culture."
