Cultural Center The Stars of Sidi Moumen-Casablanca, 2014

THE GREENHOUSE
2nd édition

October 2014-February 2015

Cultural Center The Stars of Sidi Moumen-Casablanca

 

Cycle of workshops, research, collective creations and interventions by contemporary artists to collectively rethink the city and its uses, and seek to reclaim urban and peri-urban spaces.

 

The Green Guerilla Movement (or Green guerilla) is driven by the desire and the will for a better community life in the city. It began in the United States in 1973 with the conversion by citizens and artists of an abandoned housing estate in Manhattan into a collective garden. In Sidi Moumen, it takes the form of workshops, research, collective creations and interventions by contemporary artists with the inhabitants of the neighborhood (making and throwing seed bombs, collective reflection on green spaces that have become landfills or parking lots, comics, design, recycling, creation of a shared garden, culinary design, mini-publications, etc..).

 

WITH INTERVENTIONS BY ABDERRAHIM NIDALLHA, KHALID BASTRIOUI, DELPHINE HUGUET, JULIETTE DEJOUE, IGOR16382, KAOUTHAR OUDRHIRI, HIND OUDRHIRI, MOHAMED FARIJI, ROMANE BARY.

 

 

Program

 

Edible Zelliges CULINARY DESIGN

 

Workshop: December 17, 18 and 19, 2014

with Delphine Huguet

 

Realization of an "Edible Zellige" composed of loukoums and financiers with tastes and geometric shapes telling the desires of the participants in the workshop about their city and their neighborhood. Tasting in public to invite to incorporate and digest these dreams.

 

Delphine Huguet (Paris-Montreal) is a leading figure in culinary design in the world. She develops a culinary world as "a sensitive escape, sometimes shocking but always delicious".

 

Culinary design associates the act of eating with other sensations; reflection, sharing, contestation, dreams, poetry or even play. 

 

Presentation and public tasting: December 20 at 16 p.m. at the Les Etoiles Cultural Center in Sidi Moumen.

 

Pirates of the cities SEED BOMBS

 

Saturday, November 29 and Sunday, November 30, 2014 with Juliette Foilé and Igor 16382: making and throwing seed bombs.

 

Seed bombs are composed of clay, earth and seeds. We launch them in urban spaces lacking greenery, vacant lots, cracks in concrete buildings or even parking lots, slum roofs, abandoned spaces to make your city bloom. 

 

Juliette Déjoue (Berlin) is an artist-illustrator and Igor 16382 (Villefranche de Rouergue) is a visual artist, screen printer and performer.

 

The notebook

 

Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 November 2014 with Hind and Kaouthar Oudrhiri

 

The team of the Exhibition will invest the neighborhood of Sidi Moumen and try to give an account through texts, drawings, images, interviews, and other modes of free expression of this peri-urban space through the use of its inhabitants.

A mapping object of the symbolic places of the neighborhood, based on the daily experiences and the stories of the inhabitants will be created collectively.

 

Hind Oudrhiri (Casablanca) graduated from the National School of Architecture (ENA) in Rabat. His work revolves around several disciplines bordering on architecture: scenography, design and contemporary art.

 

Kaouthar Oudrhiri (Casablanca) is a journalist particularly committed to supporting contemporary cultural production. She surprises with her incisive way of processing information and her gaze that makes her see in the current events little stories to tell.
