L’appartement 22 invites Ninar Esber and organizes a meeting with the artist on 6 March 2008 at 19:00.
Exhibition from 6 March to 29 April 2008.
Ninar Esber is an artist and writer. Born in 1971 in Beirut (Lebanon), she lives and works in Paris. She is engaged in a practice that implicates her body in performances or videos that play with a certain slowness at the limits of immobility where the ideas of waiting, suspense, and teasing find themselves confronted by architecture (walls, towers, promontories), by day-to-day objects (bookshelves, tables, chairs) or by contemporary mythologies (superheroes, pin-up girls…). The performance constitutes a decisive element (the scenes are filmed in real time and are not edited, each scene constituted as a performance executed in a single take). Beginning in 2002, she inaugurated a video journal following 1 minute long filmed sequences which include:1 min in Bangkok (DV, 2003), 1 min in London (DV, 2005), 1 min in Beirut (DV, 2005), 1 min in Beaubourg-Centre Pompidou (DV, 2005), 1 min in New York (DV, 2006), 1 min in Maroc, (DV, 2008).
L’appartement 22 is located at 279 avenue Mohamed V in Rabat (Morocco). T+212 (0) 63 59 82 88
