    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Hammered stainless steel polished on the back and the imprint, Stainless steel brushed on the edge, H. 205.5 x W.80 x D. 50 cm, 2012 Signed by the artist and numbered on 8 copies. + 4EA Alongside his “Âlif” nails, which are particularly representative of his work, we can admire a “Monolith” 2 meters high. Taking the shape of a menhir, this vertically erected stone reproduces on its rear surface the edge and brilliance of a raw flint which is transformed into a sublime kaleidoscope thanks to the polishing of its material. Going around this rock we then discover a flat face in brushed stainless steel, as if cut into the material which reveals in its heart the allegorical imprint of the incision of a wedge-shaped nail.

Yazid Oulab

Algeria Born in: 1958

Yazid Oulab was born in 1958 in Constantine, Algeria.

His father was a mechanic, his mother a French teacher, and he is the nephew of writer Kateb Yacine.

As a teenager, he was in contact with the intellectual scene in his uncle's home. At the age of 22 he decided to study art and was accepted at the Beaux-Arts School in Algiers. Almost 6 years later, he moved to Marseilles and he was accepted at the Luminy Art School. He worked on construction sites in order to pay his studies, and he became familiar with techniques that helped him a lot in his practice.

In 2008, he was featured in the exhibition Les Traces du Sacré (“Traces of the Sacred") at the Musée National d'Art Moderne, Centre Pompidou, and he was a resident at the Calder studio from February to July 2009. In 2013, he has been chosen to inaugurate the new headquarters of the FRAC PACA in Marseille, with the occasion of Marseille's year as a European Capital of Culture.
