“Considered one of the rising stars of contemporary art, Mustapha Azeroual (1979) is a self-taught French-Moroccan artist. Scientist by training, he bases his research on the observation and experimentation of the image. Mixing installation, volume and sequence with old photographic processes, he updates historical techniques in consideration of contemporary photography challenges. The question of the materiality of the image is at the heart of his creative process.
Presented in international fairs, his works have joined major private collections (JP Morgan in the USA, MACAAL in Morocco, Sanders in the Netherlands, Amart in France) and institutional collections (CNAP, FRAC Auvergne, Musée français de la Photographie). In 2020 he won the national photographic commission Image 3.0 initiated by the Ministry of Culture and the Centre National des Arts Plastiques in partnership with Le Jeu de Paume, the subject of his last exhibition (May-September 2022), curated by Pascal Beausse and Quentin Bajac.
Going back to the source of photography, considering light not only as a vector of the visible, but for itself. This is a leitmotif of the artist’s work, which will be presented through three of his series: Actin, Monade, Radiance
