Rabat– In the heart of the Arts District of La Marina-Rabat-Sale, Moroccan ceramicist Myriam Mourabit will open her apartment to public visitors for an exhibition of her artistic works and decorations from March 20 until April 2.
Located near the Bouregreg river between the cities of Rabat and Sale, La Marina’s Arts District is known for its luxurious interior design and captivating gardens, which offer a peaceful ambiance, perfect for any artistic display.
As part of the Arts District, Mourabit’s apartment exhibition will feature graphic designs and interior decorations inspired by Morocco’s traditional crafts and artistic heritage.
Mourabit describes her apartment’s interior as an eclectic combination of her favorite design features, passion for graphic design, love for luxurious handicrafts, and personal taste for specific materials selected with care.
Mourabit told Morocco World News about her inspirations and reason behind her choice to display her artworks in Arts District of La Marina:
“The setting of [La Marina Arts District] is ideal because it offers a view on Rabat and Sale’s historical heritage, which is why I thought of this eclectic apartment that will fuse my passion for graphic design and my love for luxurious handmade materials,” she explained.
“I received training as a textile designer,” Mourabit added, “I have always been very sensitive to and inspired by colours, textures, and patterns which I regularly depict on my decoration works. My fusion of design styles represents how I view life: colorful in its diversity.”
“Morocco is an illustrious, colorful country, remarkable for its rich multicultural heritage, and this is what inspires my works,” Mourabit concluded.
Mourabit is among the top-tier of Moroccan talent in ceramic pottery, art, architectural design, and traditional handicrafts.
She won the Morocco Awards’ Best Design in 2013, the Best Stand for Marrakech’s Riad Art Exposition in 2012, and the Art Exposition Prize in 2008.
Mourabit has worked with renowned architects and interior design brands like Bô Design Concept Store, Jonathan Amar, Soukeina Hachem, Blanc’s House, Ummy Afrika, and Roche Bobois.
Developed by UAE private investment company Eagle Hills, La Marina composes one part of Rabat’s development project to promote the city as a tourist hub. The area is marked by three distinct settings: the Waterfront District-bordering the Bouregreg river, distinguished by its modern shops and leisure attractions; the Odyssée District, known for its unique urban buildings; and the Arts District which features lush indoors, green sceneries, swimming pools and playgrounds.
