Hicham Gardaf’s photographic works and installations investigate transformations of contemporary landscape in relation to time, space, and politics of place. His work often tackles issues related to the social spaces we live in, such as buildings, streets, cities; it raises questions about practices that we apply to these places by inhabiting, appropriating and controlling them.

His work has been shown at Guest Projects in London, Museum of African Contemporary Art AL Maaden in Marrakech, Beit Beirut in Beirut, La Friche La Belle de Mai in Marseille, Bibliothèque Nationale de France and Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris.

Gardaf was born in 1989 in Tangier, Morocco, and is currently based in London.
