Prima Materia

by Abdelkader Benchamma

Abdelkader Benchamma has created on the ceiling of the hotel’s entrance chamber a huge fresco in Indian ink evoking Alchemy, a contemporary variation of the techniques of the Grand Siècle.

Each element is spread out over a quarter of the vault: marine flows touch the hollows of matter and ink left by the air, the glow of flames comes to lick the brown strata illustrating the earth … The four elements intertwine to evoke this quest that turned the heads of thinkers and scientists of all eras, committed to understanding and dominating the transformations of matter, in search of wealth and eternity.
