Paris Photo 2022

Grand Palais Ephémère
Loft Art Gallery is pleased to participate in this year's edition of Paris Photo hosted at the Grand Palais Ephemere.

We are excited to present works by two brilliant artists: Joanna Choumali and Mous Lamrabat. The overall effect of this dual exhibition is an exaltation of lightness, or inner peace. Inspired by their experiences of heritage and sense of origin, both Choumali and Lamrabat use textiles as a point of departure to highlight cultural or geographical references. Lamrabat envelops his subjects in shimmering cloth, juxtaposing drapery against arid landscapes and the deep blue sky. Scenes of unbridled futurism. Choumali demonstrates her technical mastery with a series of photographic works—layered with tulle and embroidered with gold—that capture the light, sublimating moments of stillness. Elegant silhouettes in pearly white stand before pink-orange sunsets, or the headlamps of a taxi, drawing us into the spatiality of the image and its material. Shimmering.
