About Ismail Alaoui Fdili

Ismail Alaoui Fdili is a Moroccan artist born in 1992 in Casablanca. He is a graduate of both Institut Supérieur des Arts de Toulouse and Ecole Nationale d’arts de Paris-Cergy. He first explored creation and artistic direction before joining, in 2020, l’école Kourtrajmé in Montfermeil under the direction of Ladj Ly. Asmail Alaoui Fdili is interested in the people living on the margins, in the gap between social inclusion and exclusion. Its playgrounds are intermediate spaces such as recycling centers or parking lot. Through his practice, the artists dialogue with people practicing socially discredited and devalued jobs such as rag-pickers, car guards and lookouts also called “chouf”. Ismail Alaoui Fdili’s practice involves different mediums such as sculpture, photography, performance and film. He is currently in residence at Ateliers Médicis in Clichy-sous-Bois as well as at Synesthésie Mmaintenant in Saint-Denis, where he is developing, in collaboration with the Ile-de-France region, a project around Diogenes syndrome. Ismail Alaoui Fdili is also founder and Dean of the International University of Car Guarding based in Marrakech and Clichy-sous-Bois.
