Mounir Fatmi


A house is filled with heating equipment which could heat up the entire town. The artwork is named after the town in Morocco where the artist is originally from. He overlaps the phenomenon of abandoned houses in Echigo-Tsumari with his memory of a house in which he grew up when he was leading a modest life during his childhood. The disappearing houses and eternal memories intersect in the artwork.
