Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK7624_M392).
Hicham Benohoud is best known for his minutely composed group portraits in the hallowed tableau tradition, in which he ’reduces’ the human form to an object among objects, our body parts mere compositional attributes of a certain scenography. The portraits of guileless schoolboys who eagerly assume the most bizarre of positions in the long-term photo suite Salle de classe rank among the genre‘s best examples. These pictures were acquired in the context of the 2007 exhibition project 'UNTITLED: Moussem Festival Spring 2007'.
