Taking up a book on Mohamed El Baz means attempting to better understand how an artist observes the world and learning from this. It is a question of actually breaking into the reality that is explored by an exceptional intelligence and artistic sensibility. The reader allows himself to be swept away with El Baz beyond representation into an adventure involving both the mind and the eye. This artistic process is obsessively poetic and has something of Mallarmé about it that descends into an abyss of complexity only to emerge immediately into the light and a new clarity. This oeuvre marked by tension, in refusing to submit to traditionally accepted ideas, makes accessible to the viewer the need to go beyond the narrative and fully enter that rich area of experience between social reality and emotional intuition, which enables us to produce a thought, and whose mechanisms and aesthetic issues Nadine Descendre reveals in this book. Mohamed El Baz was born in 1967 at El Ksiba, Morocco. He lives in Lille, France.
