In the framework of the second edition of the “Curators Zone”, Susana Moliner, member of Grigri Projects, in collaboration with Cherimus, develops Côte à Côte a creative project between the Italian artist Matteo Rubbi and the Moroccan artist Yassine Balbzioui who stops first in Rabat in October 2014 and 2015 it was held in Perdaxius, Sardinia.
A proposal that seeks to link the transformation processes and the conditions of possibility “to be and create with the other.” From the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Sea, the common sky between Rabat and Sardinia opens, from where Matteo and Yassine will try to understand the spaces where life is taking place and experiences escape the pure and rigid identity lines that mark the territories.
The sky as a physical place where the two “côtes” can meet and it is possible to establish a dialogue between the two artists and the two communities involved in the project. Two night skies: Rabat and Perdaxius. The first belonging to a big city, and the second on the coast of an island, where the starry sky resists without ever having disappeared.
