Mohamed Bourouissa: Horseday
AMSTERDAM  •  Stedelijk Museum  •  10 September - 31 December 2016

Last year, the Stedelijk bought a photograph and a two-channel video by the French-Algerian artist Mohamed Bourouissa. Both works represent a facet of the project Horseday (2013-present). This autumn, the Stedelijk presents the works as part of a gallery-filling installation designed by the artist.

Bourouissa (1978, Blida) lives and works in Paris. He is renowned for his dynamic, impactful colour photographs of youth, immigrants and everyday life in the Paris suburbs. For his most recent piece, Horseday, Bourouissa worked with a local community in Philadelphia (US). Fascinated by the role that horses, stables and riding plays in the life of the African American community, he collaborated with artists and riders to launch a competition for the most elegantly decorated horse. Bourouissa translated this event into a series of imposing photos, a film and a sequence of sculptures. The images powerfully reference the notion of the classic, sometimes stereotypical, cowboy. The video largely comprises footage of daily life in combination with the staged event.
