Because even fossils can fake it till they make it
Tangier-based artist Yto Barrada playfully dissects Morocco’s booming fossil and mineral trade with her colourful collection of both real and artificial artifacts. Her work explores fossilized traces of the country’s long-extinct species and how that preserved history is adapted (sometimes fraudulently!) for the marketplace. The exhibition includes a screening of Faux Départ, a kind of guide to the making and distribution of fake fossils. The Power Plant, thepowerplant.org.
