Noir #1 & Noir #7

Elmarsa Gallery is a Tunisian gallery that opened a branch in Alserkal Avenue in 2015 and is showcasing photography by Tunisian-born photogrpaher Mouna Karray. 


Speaking about her project Noir, 2013, Karray says, “In jail, my body is constrained but remains able to create. Only my hand is visible to activate the shooting distance. The air release, single connection with the outside world, is not longer just an instrument to accomplish a photographic act, but turns out to be a way to get free. It is in the dark we start to see.”
