The opening of the artist’s exhibition, his first in Asia, entitled “A Taste of Things to Come”, took place this Wednesday at the Barakat Contemporary gallery, in the center of the South Korean capital.
Hajjaj’s works exude an attraction that catches the eye and establishes interactivity with the receiver, with photos that wonderfully reflect the vivid colors typical of North Africa, writes Yonhap.
The images and scenes in the photos are framed with packaging made from common products from Morocco, including drinks, cans, toys, recycled tires or boxes of matches.
The artist-photographer has to his credit several individual and group exhibitions, notably at Hayward Gallery in London, at the European House of Photography in Paris and at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
The Seoul exhibition brings together Hajjaj’s major photographic works, including “My Rockstars”, “Kesh Angels”, “Dakka Marrakchia” and “Legs” in addition to the 26-minute video clip “My Rockstars Experimental Vol. 2 ”.
