IT’S INCREDIBLE the way they look at the camera. It’s like a performance. As a 17-minute film, it can be tough to look at. Some people just can’t take it - all these faces walking towards them is such an intrusion into their personal space. It clearly is thought-provoking.”
— Artist Narimane Mari

Artist Narimane Mari curated by award-winning curator Catherine Sicot

Catherine sicot bio circle
Narimane is a force of nature. Her films take you by surprise. You embark on mesmerizing flows of images and sound, and suddenly, you fall back on bare reality. She captures the extraordinary where most people don't see it.”


Catherine Sicot's unconventional curatorial practice develops on the edges of the white cube. Catherine has built a reputation as a fearless art producer facilitating international art collaborations with underserved communities in Canada, France and Cuba. During the 2012 Havana Biennial, she co-curated MAC/SAN, an ephemeral international contemporary art museum in a suburb of Havana. Since 2014, she has been developing La Primavera del Amor, a platform for intercultural research and art production in Cuba. In 2015, in conjunction with the 12th Havana Biennial, she launched "Hors Pistes: La Primavera del amor” first edition of Hors-Pistes Festival in Havana, in collaboration with the Centre Pompidou’s (Hors-Pistes Programme) and local partners. She has collaborated in the development of the Sophie La Rosière Project with Iris Häussler since 2013.
