Souad El Maysour’s artistic research focuses on notions of individual and collective memory, and raises the question of domination. Her work is based on texts, still and moving images, sound and interviews. He engages the viewer in an exploration of territories.
The aim of collecting elements or fragments is to restore history, or sometimes to repair memory; in short, to create contemporary narratives of the territories observed. The projects follow a common protocol of quest, accumulation and documentation, as the idea unfolds. In the process, she gleans texts, words, images, sounds, objects and ways of doing things, gradually building up the body of the work itself.
