Skateboards with prayer rugs by Mounir Fatmi at UNTITLED art fair, Miami – Florida

January 2nd, 2015 by retail design blog

Dozens of prayer rugs used by Muslims during the various positions of Islamic prayer have been deconstructed by Moroccan-born artist Mounir Fatmi. During the UNTITLED Artfair in Miami during Art Basel Miami Beach, ADN galeria presented Fatmi’s recent work, which deals with the desecration of religious objects and, in turn, the end of dogmas and ideologies. Skateboards strewn around the exhibition space have been clad in richly-colored and ornately patterned fabrics, giving an alternative meaning to the original intentions of both of the familiar objects.
