Ghizlane Agzenaï, heiress of the Casablanca school
Born in Tangier, Ghizlane Agzenaï is famous for creating colourful and monumental totems. She lives and works in Casablanca and travels to the four corners of the world to instil and present her art. Driven by a positive philosophy of life that can be read through her work, she created the surprise in April 2020 by making the video work "Emerge" which she shared by projecting it on one of the buildings of the Casablanca metropolis during the first confinement.
"I define myself as an optimistic human being who uses shapes and colours to share love and light" - Ghizlane.
"In general, the totem is transmitted by the mother."It is on this same principle that Ghizlane creates her colourful totems. Her creations are imbued with a positive philosophy of life that she passes on to her collectors.
Considered as the heir of the Casablanca School, curious and versatile, she creates her works in different formats on different supports: wall, wood, cardboard, canvas, electricity, metal. Her major works oscillate between wall drawings and multiple exhibitions in Europe and Africa.
In November 2020, she presents the solo exhibition Emerge Reloaded at Galerie 38 in Casablanca. In 2018 and 2019, she dressed the wall of Vigo Ciudade Color, the US Barcelona, the Mural Harbor in Austria, the Orberkampf wall in Paris. She participates in the Jidar festival at the Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rabat. She presents the solo exhibition Totem at Galerie 38 in Casablanca and in 2017 What the weekend is 2, Alte Munze in Berlin.
In 2021, after participating in the exhibition Colors of Abstraction II at the 193 Gallery, she will be present at Menart Fair, the first contemporary art fair specialising in the arts of the Middle East and North Africa.
