Born in 1987 in Casablanca, Morocco. Lives and works in Paris, France.


In films, photographs, and installations, Randa Maroufi, stages and documents reenactments of existing images and everyday occurrences to broaden considerations of the underlying tensions and ambiguities within the original contexts. Maroufi’s photography and moving images examine conflicts and questions of access and safety within public spaces, especially where negotiations of gender, social status, and citizenship influence the parameters of participation. Though the imminent threat of violence often hangs over her scenes, Maroufi’s all-seeing camera angles and overdubbed narrations from actual participants enable multidimensional stories to unfold and subjective understandings to develop. Embedded in Maroufi’s works are pathways toward deeper mutual understandings and possibilities for existing together better.
