Noor Datis - Photographer
« Ever since her first photographical experiments, Noor has explored the various aspects of inscriptions, in a constant relationship with the other. In her early works, she was translating, making visible, the symbolic absence of graffiti writers and their bodies, illegally painting the public space; ten years later, she continues to follow the trace of human presence, signs, patterns and other symbols that exist in the natural space, therefore, creating a photographic location of her own.
Revealing the marks of her direct physical environment, by mixing cityscapes and her intimate worlds, Noor shows, series after series, a sensitive evolution, a constant re-creation, through a very personal relationship to the fleeing time, extremely contemporary, on the verge of generational, but somehow timeless, where what is permanent is, however, never set in stone. »
