These tiny collages, drawings and mixed-media works all represented on Match Boxes are part of the series called Omri (My Life) by Moroccan artist Mohamed Larbi Rahhali.
Omri is included in Here and Elsewhere, the comprehensive group exhibit currently inhabiting The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City.
Here and Elsewhere is a major exhibition of contemporary art from and about the Arab world, and brings together more than forty-five artists from over fifteen countries.
These photos capture just a fraction of the hundreds of Match Boxes in Mohamed Larbi Rahhali‘s piece, and the work is still ongoing.
Watch for more posts featuring art from Here and Elsewhere on The Gig in the upcoming week.
Here and Elsewhere is on Exhibit Through September 28th, 2014, at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, located at 235 Bowery (at Prince street) in Soho, NYC.

Thanks forever. Mohamed Larbi Rahhali.
As we would like to show the work of Mohamed Larbi Rahali so much in our Kunstraumlangenlois
in Austria, maybe you could give us his address and make a contact for us?
That would be great. we have a show here with nearly 40 artists, many of them international
well-known artists, but it was not able for us to reach Mohamed Larbi Rahali. So his name is
announced in our invitation, but his work is the only missing one.
So maybe you can help us.
in the meantime thank you and best wishes and regards from Austria
Christina Lackner and Norbert Fleischmann
Thank you so much… next week I will try to reach Mr. Rahali
warmest regards from Langenlois, Christina
