Thursday May 12 between 17:00-21.00 hrs is the festive public opening with a drink and a bite. Ghita Skali is in the gallery from 19.00 hrs to join us to celebrate the presentation of her video ‘”The Eiffel Towers” on view for the first time in the Netherlands.

Ghita Sali’s video “The Eiffel Towers”, is about the construction of an Eiffel Tower in Fez in Morocco. At the end of 2013, an Eiffel Tower was installed on a roundabout in the city of Fes. Later on, it was removed. How does an object become integrated into the collective unconscious of a society? What is claimed to be Art installed at a roundabout? In which way do individuals perceive these objects? Objects from a different culture, copied, coming from the former colonizer.
