Megumi Matsubara is in Morocco since Jan 2012, with a generous invitation and support of Dar Al-Ma’mûn Foundation (Swiss/Morocco) and will be based in Marrakech for five months spending her time to further develop my spatial language in the fields of art and architecture. For that reason, Megumi’s personal studio is located at Dar Al-Ma’mûn until Summer 2012, while her architecture studio Assistant operates simultaneously in Tokyo without delay.
Dar Al-Ma’mûn is an international center for artistic residencies located 14 km from Marrakech. The third artist residencies session has started since november 2011. Four artists were selected out of 553 applications from 84 countries. The selection committee was composed of Bob Nickas (independent curator), Marie de Brugerolle (independent curator), Mario Cristiani (Galerie Continua – San Gimignano / Beijing / Le Moulin), Jack Persekian (Director of Dar al-Ma’mal Foundation – Jerusalem).
