Hicham Berrada

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.
