The Third Line Presents ‘My Rock Stars: Volume 1,’ an Exhibition by Hassan Hajjaj

My Rock Stars: Volume 1

Sep. 12, 2012- Oct. 18

Hassan Hajjaj

Hassan Hajjaj’s work encompasses many techniques and fields, from designing and producing furniture including lamps, stools, poufs made from recycled North African artifacts such as upturned Coca-Cola crates as stools, road signs turned into tables tops as well as custom made clothes and photography. 
 
 

Hajjaj is best known for designing the ‘Andy Wahloo’ bar-restaurant in Paris. ‘Andy Wahloo’ acknowledges one of his favourite artists, Andy Warhol, but also at the same time refers to a Parisian slang term meaning ‘I have nothing’, adopted by Hajjaj as a way of describing his work. 

 

His latest works have incorporated the language of fashion photography, as well as African studio photography in a series of playful portraits of friends and various other characters from the streets of Marrakesh.
 
 

The artist now lives and works between London, England andMarrakech, Morocco.
