The works of Hicham Berrada weave an elaborate tapestry between science and poetry. They make use of scientific parameters to reveal the universal magic of our daily lives, intricately choreographing a complex dance between chemical particles and physical reactions. It is not about a representation of nature, but rather about nature being present and active in the majority of his works. Hicham employs a variety of media from photography, video and sculpture to installations and performance (which he nicknames “chemical activations”). He has reinterpreted the fundamentals of painting: the bare canvas is reality while the paint and brush are the physical elements.
