Kenza El Idrissi

b. 1998

About Born in 1998 in Casablanca, Kenza El Idrissi is a poet and embroiderer, an architect by profession, and a self-taught artist by passion. Whether on fabric or white sheets, she embroiders her feelings and ink the ripples of her soul. With the words of poetry, she tries to name the intangible and the immaterial, sketching the outlines of what is said in secret, revealing a glimpse of what plays out within bodies without always showing itself. With colors and fabrics, she mimics sensations, transforming them into metaphors and delicate visual charades. Through an aesthetic of detour and the enigmas of language, she stitches together clues and compiles her emotions. In installations or in notebooks, she offers to entrust them, with delicacy and meticulousness, to those who will attempt to decipher them. Her palette is enriched, since she began the collection of her "Amorous Experiments," with confidential words and pastel colors, diaphanous fabrics and discreet needles, with which she reveals, as if whispering, what it means to be a woman, to be in love and to be loved, to desire or to hope. Patiently, in an almost monastic silence, the artist seeks to designate or conceal, to signify or elude, always through fragments. Kenza El Idrissi enjoys being discreet and playing hide-and-seek, slipping into the interstices to better pave a solitary yet engaging path towards the intimate, like tracks to be followed by those willing to embark on the adventure of introspection.
