Ramia Beladel (°1987, Marrakech, Morocco) is an artist whoworks in a variety of media. With a conceptual approach, Beladeltries to approach a wide scale of subjects in a multi- layered way,likes to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical andbelieves in the idea of function following form in a work.Her art works directly respond to the surrounding environmentand uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point.Often these experiences are framed instances that would gounnoticed in their original context. By applying abstraction, shecreates intense personal moments linked by means of rules andomissions, acceptance and refusal.Her works never show the complete structure, the results in thefact that the artist can easily imagine an own interpretationwithout being hindered by the historical reality. By examining theambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries toincrease the dynamic between audience and author by objectifyingemotions and investigating the duality that develops throughdifferent interpretations.Her works doesn’t reference recognizable form. The results aredeconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
Anonymous objects is a series of work which combines sculpture and object design.
Through this work I treat several materials as casted aluminum, wood to have a kind of spontaneous result, in this way the object becomes a field of contradiction between the functionality and the aesthetic.
The object immersed in a vision of a design which must be: democratic, contradictory, eclectic, empathetic and fearless, reflecting our era.
Being deeply interested in the impact of the abstraction on the world, and how the world is becoming reduced to numbers and codes so in this pathway I made this series, because if we abstract all the tiny details from each discipline, we reach the same result which is creativity and the necessity of doing things differently.
This interest in the impact of the abstraction brought me to prehistoric design and how the primitive man used to design objects from nothing in order to serve a need, and just with his own way of seeing things, he changed his living into an “easier” one.
So the importance of the necessity and the way of seeing objects, can change a whole system of life, for example: if I’m riding through a deserted road in the middle of nowhere feeling tired when suddenly I see a rock. The necessity of my need and the abstraction of my view push me to see the rock differently, so I start to see it as chair or a seat, so here the abstraction on a usual example of what man can design in the moment of a need, and this need doesn’t have to be a physical need but could be also a spiritual one.
