Bab Sebta is built of a series of reconstructions of diverse situations observed in Ceuta, a Spanish enclave in the North of Morocco. A place experiencing a traffic of manufactured goods, sold at discounted prices. Every day, thousands of people work there.
Randa Maroufi. Born in 1987, Casablanca, works and lives in Paris. As a Fine Arts graduate from the University of Tetouan, Angers and Le Fresnoy, Randa Maroufi belongs to this generation that grew up in an era dominated by images. She collects them with as much eagerness as suspicion, and ceaselessly questions their veracity. The field of her ambiguous fiction and experimentation encompasses the occupation of public space and gender issues in a continuous search to highlight its founding mechanisms.
Randa Maroufi’s work has been presented at art events and film festivals such as The Marrakech Biennale, the Arab World Institute in Paris, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the MOMA, etc.
