Catalogue Note

True to the minimalist procedures she is so fond of, Latifa Echakhch made her Tambours (Drums) with limited means. Suspending a drip full of black ink above a round canvas in the shape of a target, she allows chance to take over whilst still controlling it, skillfully choosing when to stop the flow. With their deep black centres, saturated with matter, the Tambours establish a dialectic between being and nothingness, turning  the spectator into a witness of the evanescence of matter.
