Safaa Erruas

Safaa Erruas was born in Tétouan, Morocco, where she lives and works. In 2009, she was selected as one of five significant female artists from the new generations of women artists in the Muslim world, for a New York exhibition organized by MoCADA, or Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts. In 2022, she took part in the African Voices exhibition in Milan, along with Mounir Fatmi and Maimouna Gerresi. Her works are part of collections at the Moroccan Royal Palace, Société Générale (Morocco), Caisse de dépôt et de gestion (Morocco), ONA Foundation in Morocco, Fondation Jean Paul Blachère in Apt, and the Centre d’art contemporain de Lagos in Nigeria. While at the Dora Maar House, Erruas will be working on a collaborative project entitled, “MOVING From South to South” with Alejandra González Soca, a Uruguayan artist based in Maldonado and Christine Ferrer, a French artist based in Ménerbes. This collaborative project seeks to explore approaches that connect them both conceptually and materially, based on the idea of geographical displacement.
