Houda Bakkali exhibits «Deadly Sins» art series at Alliance Française
As part of its 40th anniversary, Alliance Française (Madrid) starts 2024 with an art exhibition signed by artist Houda Bakkali. Her colorful large-format canvases will be on display for 2 months. They will also be shown to the public through augmented reality and interactive tours to discover the digital techniques used by Bakkali to create her art.
“It is an honor to share my art with Alliance Française. Starting 2024 by exhibiting in an institution that represents the linguistic, artistic and cultural legacy of France, whose richness is unquestionable and unique, and also doing so within the framework of its 40th anniversary, is quite a privilege. My artistic career has a very close link with France, with Cannes, the city where I really began my career, with Biarritz and Paris, cities where I have had the honor of exhibiting my art on several occasions. France has always opened its doors to me and has been my refuge of inspiration. In this exhibition at the Alliance Française I will share my series “Deadly Sins”, which invites us to reflect on the society we have created through an ironic and playful vision. The masks invite the public to reflect and the digital technique invites them to play with their different versions, creating a perfect intersection between the 7 pieces.” Bakkali says.
The exhibition is complemented by other pieces, an educational tour in which the public will get closer to the digital technique that Bakkali uses, in addition to enjoying the immersive versions of each canvas through augmented reality and expanding the information about through the metaverse.
“It is a pleasure to exhibit this series at Alliance Française, I am very grateful for her love and I congratulate them for their great professionalism and kindness.”Houda Bakkali
