M'hammed Kilito/Morocco/ b. 1981
"M’hammed Kilito travels the streets of the small town, seizes its poetry, escheat, bits of deserted architecture, real details that graze abstraction. He meets and photographs the troubadour, the weaver, the potter, the blacksmith, … He immortalises the abandoned cinema, which is fading and peeling, as well as the projectionist who keeps the history and the archives.
The photographic result of this exploratory dive in a film’s history, a place and of people is marked by a great poetry at the same time as it is a statement at the edge of the documentary, as is the movie.
M’hammed Kilito’s images capture what can not be seen, the slowness of passing time, the inevitability, the singularity, the amnesia. A thoughtful, patient and deeply human approach to his subject, “in the lineage of visual sociology” and in the footsteps of Hakim Belabbes. A respectful, objective and sensitive look that fits above all in the sharing of memory."

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices.
Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.
At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
