Marrakech: Rancinan @ Montresso* Art Foundation

Gérard Rancinan & Caroline Gaudriault

Launched with the Marrakech Biennale (covered) the new museum space of the Montresso* Art Foundation opened with a retrospective dedicated to French photographer Gerard Rancinan, retracing forty years of photographic work.

Intensely theatrical and heavily staged, the photographs feature a rich visual landscape with elaborate costumes and dramatic poses.

The world’s biggest photograph measuring 9 x 13 meters  features ‘Le Radeau des Illusions’  outside the new museum space.

Conceived in collaboration with French author Caroline Gaudriault, the exhibition showcases a series of the largest to date photographs retracing major periods of the artist: Portraits ( showing artist friends within their creative space), The Trilogy of Moderns  ( 2007 – 2013) and Human Destiny (2015).

Texts by Caroline Gaudriault have been calligraphed by Ouida Abdelghani and  translated by Said Tliti.
