La Traversée


“Nacera Belaza continues her demanding research, between abstraction and mystical inspirations, in her playLa Traversée. Like a Pierre Soulages of choreographic art, she composes paintings in shades of black, prefers vibrations to large throws, observes how the light catches or slides over the moving material. (…) It is like a big bang, calm and mysterious, which takes place for an hour before our eyes.”
