Asma Belhamar's practice frequently confronts the visual memory of local landscapes. Through this anchoring theme, she merges architectural and organic elements, translating them into hybrid materialities. Overall, her practice engages with notions of time and spatial memory.
This installation confronts perspectives of nature and the built environment, marrying the two realities. Belhamar speaks to the visual distortion experienced when commuting from mountainscapes into cityscapes, where the change from landscape to architecture and from topography to iconography feels like a journey through shifting scales and times.
By borrowing fragments from different landscapes, these sculptural works dismiss the grandiosity of fixed formations, whether mountains or megastructures. The individual pieces are staged in tangible proximity, and together, these new formations may well question how memories oscillate between spaces and sensorial perspectives.
