Yto Barrada (*1971 in Paris) lives and works in Tangiers. The city’s special location on the Straits of Gibraltar—the edge of Europe, which, despite its proximity, remains beyond reach for most of Tangiers’ inhabitants—has a strong influence on the artist’s work. The motifs of her photographs, films, and installations sharpen our consciousness of the transformation this region is undergoing, making us aware of the constantly shifting cultural, economical, and political boundaries. In her meditative photographs and 16mm films, Barrada documents the periphery of this rapidly growing city of millions, whose inhabitants seem to be trapped in a state of permanent waiting, and where the surrounding natural environment is gravely endangered by urban development.
