Copy of Free Market

(project in progress)


FREE MARKET

“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 as cultural translations, as communicative objects? Can the relationships between the viewer and the viewed be transformed? A set of objects was sourced locally, and through traveling across the country.

Quotidian things like bread, tapestry, ski, crates, oranges, and stones, were reconfigured as sculpture. Using a traditional method of transportation, a donkey cart, the works were delivered to Marrkech’s public sqaure and market, Jamaa el-Fnaa. Once at the site, the temporary exhibition was installed and presented to the public.
