“Nacera Belaza tackles head-on the question of ritual that has permeated all of her previous works. […] Essential notions such as unity, being and its relationship to infinite space and time, the letting go at the origin of the surpassing of oneself, are put back into play, in the light of the universal pulsation founding these ancient practices.”

Note of intent

“I feel that my entire career is like a straight line. Each of my pieces is a milestone on a straight path, without deviation. When you deviate, you know it, you feel it. It seems to me that the artist must oppose this with all his strength. The line that connects two points is necessarily taut, without respite. One and the same intention that one repeats tirelessly, and it is on oneself that one is actually working.”
