Najia Mehadji :- MOROCCO

Born in Paris in 1950 of a Moroccan origin.Works and lives in Paris

I seek to find connections between origins of geometric forms. I began focusing on the "dome" since 1994 and did a lot of research on Arab and universal architeture. In all cultures the dome is the symbol of the sky, it is based on the octagon, inscribed by two shift -staggered squares- the square being the symbol of earth -the octagon I frequently use symbolizing the upward transition between earthy world and the mysterious sky.
