Yassine "Yaze" Mekhnache’s work is suffused with considerations on personal and family history. Memory is understood not as a history that is written or told but, rather, as something mental that is experienced physically. Perhaps Yaze strives to paint memory: every recollection is a monad, one of these small multicoloured pith balls – soft and sealed – he paints relentlessly, and which seem each to contain a memory or impression.
