Touda Bouanani

Artist Touda Bouanani (1966, Morocco) lives and works in Rabat. Her work, mainly in video but also photography, installation, and works on paper, is characterized by the constant search for dialogue between the poetic text and image. Her practice feeds on intimate and familial references, everyday objects, and children, referring to universal themes such as beauty, solitude, and love.

Bouanani graduated from the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux. Her work has been shown at the CAPC, Bordeaux, The Whitney Museum, and MoMA in New York, Apartment 22 and Le Cube in Rabat, and the Halles de Schaerbeeck in Brussels. She has participated in numerous publications, lectures, workshops and presentations about the work of her father, filmmaker, illustrator, novelist and poet Ahmed Bouanani (1938-2011), at Tate Modern, London; the Nejma Review, Tangier; DK Eiditions, Casablanca; Editions Verdier, Paris; MoMA, New York; Cinémathèque de Tanger, Tangiers; and Jeu de Paume, Paris.

Bouanani is currently working on the creation of an Association for the preservation, conservation, and promotion of the works of Ahmed Bouanani.
