Simohammed Fettaka

Born in Tangier, 1981, lives and work between Tangier and Paris.

Fettakas work predominantly uses the medium of film, however it also incorporates photography and collage and extends to other art forms such as installation, sound art and performance. At the centre of his work is a reflection on the presentation of the image. This graphic personal interpretation is based on collective memory: the individual visual experience must thereby lead us to question our sense of ourselves.
Each person has an intimate story about sexuality. Inspired by Jean Eustache's film Une sale histoire (1977), the director stages a sonic piece in which an actor tells the story of how he became a voyeur, becoming obsessed by the peeping-hole in the women's toilet at his local bar. 
Couple's testimonies, breakdowns and desire ... Health stories at human scale. An investigation of love and sex in Paris today.
