Most works of art need language to be described. But other ones, more rare, describe the language. Yazid Oulab’s artwork definitely belongs to the second category. Looking at his work is above all to listen to the whisper of the drawing, to the silent clamour of the painting and to the deafness of early writings. Be it drawing, painting or sculpture, they all relate to language or more precisely to the breath of words. That is indeed the primary quest of the artist: to learn to speak, to learn to breathe and to re-learn to write.
