Marie Cloquet


Marie Cloquet (1976 Gent) made a series of works called HALAB (Aleppo) during the Corona lock down based on photo's she made from small Aleppo soaps her aunt used to sell and donated to Marie after closing her shop. The idea however to make these art works was taken before the corona pandemic when she was asked by " De vrienden van het SMAK, Gent " to make an edition. Marie Cloquet made a new series of 12 unique works, photographic emulsion and water colour on paper on wooden panel. These works are also remembering the Aleppo massacre and the destruction of this beautiful city by dictator and war criminal Bashar Hafiz al-Assad …
