“Free Market” was a temporary public exhibition that took place at Jamaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech, Morocco. The project began by posing a set of questions: can objects function both as cultural translations, and as communicative objects? And can the relationships between the viewer and the viewed be transformed? A set of objects was then sourced locally, and through traveling across the country.
Quotidian things like bread, tapestry, skis, crates, oranges, and stones, were reconfigured as sculptures. Using a traditional method of transportation, a donkey cart, the works were delivered to Marrakech’s public square and market, Jamaa el-Fnaa. Once at the site, the temporary exhibition was installed and presented to the public.
