Randa Maroufi

Randa Maroufi is an artist born in Casablanca in 1987 and currently lives and works in Paris. She graduated from the National Institute of Fine Arts of Tetouan and the School of Fine Arts of Angers, and is a graduate of Le Fresnoy-Studio National des Arts Contemporains de Tourcoing.

Belonging to a generation that has grown up in an era dominated by images, Ella Maroufi collects them with both enthusiasm and suspicion, without ceasing to question their veracity. She prefers to put her ambiguous fictions at the service of reality, and her area of experimentation includes the occupation of public space and also gender issues, whose foundational mechanisms she seeks to highlight.

In recent years he has participated in various group exhibitions at the Musée de la Photographie Charleroi in Belgium (2023), the Lyon Biennale (France, 2022), the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid (2021), the New Museum in New York (2020 ) and the MA Museum of Quebec (2019), among others. Her films Le Park (2015) and Bab Sebta have received numerous awards.
