Rita Alaoui is a Franco-Moroccan artist, born in Rabat in 1972, and who has lived in Paris since 2019. She graduated from the Parsons School of Design, New York, where she lived until the end of the 1990s. Fascinated and amazed by the force of nature, Rita Alaoui directs her approach to the incessant representation of a dreamlike and sacred nature and places at the center of her work the collection, accumulation and observation of organic objects that she finds during her wanderings and which she then meticulously organizes in the temple that is her studio.
First a painter, Rita Alaoui varies her modes of creation, ranging from painting to drawing, photography, installation and the creation of artists' books.
