BEST POSTS OF 2013 #48: Casablanca circles by Mounir Fatmi.
Casablanca Circles is a series of drawings done on photographs taken from an excerpt from the movie Casablanca of the final kiss Bogart and Bergman. The tangent circles of Descartes and Soddy are drawn on the pictures of the two main characters as they move closer to kiss.
This infinity of circles raises the viewer’s desire and at the same time, project our hope to see both actors united.
Although the movie refers to the Moroccan city Casablanca, occupied by the french government of Vichyduring the WWII, all the sets have been built in Hollywood. Those two lives, the real and the fictional, of the city disorient even the Moroccans and push the tourists to look for the Rick’s Café and the other locations of the movie during their stay.
The story of the movie is about an impossible love surrounded in clichés of spying and exoticism.
During the war, a couple escape the Nazis and land in Morocco in order to get the papers to join the United States. Their only contact and their only hope is the former lover of the woman.
Beyond fiction and maths, mounir fatmi wants to make us believe that something is still possible.
