Institut des Cultures d’Islam
On the walls of the 'Institut des Cultures d'Islam' in the 18th of Paris, the artist Tarek Benaoum plays his calligraphy to arabize the French literature of the writer Hélène Cixous. A tribute of 350m2 which becomes the greatest achievement of the artist in France.
The blue-tinted work and the ocher writing offer to the public space of the Leon street, a strong message that resonates with the movement 'Fraternité Générale' as well as in answer to a social movement will since it intervenes within the framework of the project "Works of art invest the street" voted by the Parisians on the occasion of the participative budget of the City of Paris. The goal is to promote urban art while boosting the public space through artistic interventions.
This work also includes the exhibition "Lettres Ouvertes, de la Calligraphie au street-art" at the 'Institut des Cultures d'Islam' until 21 January 2018.
