Masterpiece of Mounir Fatmi : Save Manhattan 03
Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale
In this column for Mounir Fatmi series, we introduce Save Manhattan 03, one of the most impressive ones in his past works.
symbolic skyline of the lost World Trade Center buildings seem to admit the revival, if it is superficial, of the everyday life of the people living there.
The vision that Fatmi fosters vis-à-vis New York is recognized as the eye from outside, or peripheral vision as our exhibition title indicate. It may be that he can reflect on such social issue so deeply and with respect because he is the outsider. He is always travelling, his multiple identity of Moroccan and of French, from culture to culture himself. Thus he tries to invite the people to look from another perspective at the present world.
