October Gallery announces its forthcoming exhibition of new works by Rachid Koraïchi. This will be the artist’s third solo show with the gallery.
In 2011, Rachid won the prestigious Jameel Prize at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, exhibiting seven large-scale banners from The Invisible Masters series.
In his new series of work, entitled Les Maîtres du Temps (Masters of Time), the artist explores our connections to the earth as a source of life. The works are blue and white canvases (titled ‘Les osties bleues’ — a reference to sacramental bread) and wall mounted square ceramics (created by Rachid with a specialised atelier in Barcelona). Koraïchi continues to use a limited palette emphasizing the graphic power of his inscriptions.
Rachid will be in conversation at October Gallery with Head of Special Projects, Gerard Houghton, to discuss his new body of work.
Please note the talk with be given in French and will be translated in to English.
