Sahwha / Resurgence Works by Hicham Berrada
In observation of the KSU’s Year of Morocco in 2020-21, the ZMA presents Sahwha / Resurgence: works by Hicham Berrada. Originally trained as a scientist in Morocco, the work of Paris-based artist Hicham Berrada exposes the beauty that can result from disruptive interactions. Represented in this exhibition by six video works, these collisions of chemicals in solution or man-made interventions in the environment create an efflorescence—or rebirth—into something new, a quality conveyed by the Arabic word sahwha. The resulting dreamlike visions represent a resurgence of something mundane or unappreciated into something eerily beautiful. The museum will be closed when the campus is closed.
