Hicham Berrada was born in 1986 in Casablanca. He lives and works in Paris and Lens. His work has been presented in many solo and group show. He is currently in residence at the Pinault Collection in Lens.
After training both as a painter and as a scientist, this artist, who is represented by Galerie Kamel Mennour, explores in his works scientific protocols that imitate as closely as possible various natural processes. This exhibition is presenting Presage, the fruit of a performance during which the artist brought together different chemical products to create a universe that examines the notions of creation, nature and matter. At La Maison des Arts de Grand-Quevilly, Presage takes the form of a video installation: what was projected and filmed during the initial performance and has been retained, the projected raw files become a video work producing poetry.
