Mounir Fatmi constructs visual spaces and linguistic games that aim to free the viewer from their preconceptions of politics and religion, and allows them to contemplate these and other subjects in new ways. His videos, installations, drawings, paintings and sculptures bring to light our doubts, fears and desires. They directly address the current events of our world, and serve to both clarify the origins and symptoms of global issues, as well as speak to those whose lives are affected by specific events.
Mounir Fatmi’s work has been exhibited in the Migros Museum fÃ¼r Gegenwarskunst, ZÃ¼rich, Switzerland, the Museum Kunst Palast, DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France, and the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo Japan.

"Not only do Mounir's works inject a terrific amount of excitement and vitality into the environment in which they are displayed, the viewer experience is always such an actively edifying and engaging one. I was particularly impressed by Oriental Accident, his March 2012 solo at Lombard Freid Projects in New York - the atmosphere created by the show's eponymous piece was electrifying and highly effective."
