The jury of the Biennale organized by ’50° nord Réseau transfrontalier d’art contemporain’, France/Belgium unanimously decided to award the ‘Watch This Space’ Award to the young Brussels-based artist with the following statement: ‘The quality of your artistic approach and your political commitment have convinced us to support you beyond the Watch This Space program, by promoting your inscription in the world of art on a European scale.’

MOSTAFA SAIFI RAHMOUNI – born in 1991 in Rabat (Morocco), MA in sculpture at the ENSAV La Cambre, Brussels; postgraduate HISK, Ghent, Belgium – has distinguished himself as one of the most interesting names of his generation. His multifaceted artistic practice combines reflections on human condition, suffering and the passage to death in an exquisite contemporary language – both personal and sensitive – denouncing misuse of power and scrutinizing the role of symbolism and social bond through ages and cultures.

Selected shows in 2017: Watch This Space Biennial – 50° Nord (Solo Show) Espace 36, Saint-Omer, France; 9ème Prix de la Jeune Sculpture de la Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles; Sharjah Biennial, Tamawuj – Ashkal Alwan, Beirut – Lebanon; La ville des vivants (Solo Show), Centrale – Lab (Centrale Electrique), Brussels

Support: ROSALUX in partnership with ’50° nord Réseau transfrontalier d’art contemporain’, France/Belgium
