Artist Video: Mous Lamrabat
Beauty and a sense of hope are central to Mous Lamrabat’s work. His photographs are absurd and surrealistic, at times subtly provocative, always colourful and fun.
Lamrabat makes playful reference to icons from the fashion world and mixes symbols of popular culture and North African culture. He teams traditional apparel with striking props to create his unique visual universe.
In 2020, FOMU awarded COVID-19 work grants to Mous Lamrabat, Aurélie Geurts, Joud Toamah, Hélène Amouzou and Alexey Shlyk & Ben Van den Berghe. They are creating new work inspired by the precarious times we are living through. The images are incorporated in FOMU’s collection.
The COVID-19 work grant was financed by FOMU, supplemented by donations from visitors and FOMU Patrons, and through subsidies from the City of Antwerp.
