« Traverser » questions a personal memory, intimately linked to the territory. Mouna Saboni is a French-Moroccan photographer whose identity has been forged by her origins. After having carried out long-term projects in the Palestinian territories and in Brazil, she is now travelling through Morocco in a true quest for identity, in order to study her own relationship with her immediate environment, as well as with the people she has met during her journey.
With a committed and sensitive work, Mouna Saboni reveals a universe full of poetry. By inscribing her text in Arabic and French on some of these images, the artist sheds a new light on her work and makes her journey, marked by the two shores of the Mediterranean, resonate with a dual artistic practice. Like an open book, the pages of her story are written and unveiled in a deafening echo.
« Traverser » has led to the publication of a portfolio of nine copies.
