I called my artworks « matière grise » (grey matter in English) for the interconnection the human beings have with the stone. We interconnect with the stones in an organic manner evoking a sense of spirituality, human consciousness and enlightenment.

Mounat Charrat was born in Casablanca, she lives and works in this same city. Along with her diploma in applied foreign languages, she received artistic training in Paris at the Académie Julian and the Académie Charpentier. Since the beginning of the 2000s, Mounat has been developing a protean artistic practice that questions the theme of the human condition in a poetic and philosophical way. Through the diversity of the mediums used, she tirelessly explores the universal history of the individual and examines more particularly the memorial and intimate relationship he maintains with the world in which he evolves, the artist seeks rhetoric through an operating mode stopped while leaving room for random intuitions, where the notion of time, space and play is determining. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Morocco and abroad: Sens et contre sens, Installation at the French Institute (Casablanca), Cultural Days of Morocco (Canary Islands), Galerie Mohamed El Fassi, (Rabat), Cité Internationale des Arts, (Paris), Galerie Crous Beaux-Arts, (Paris), Galerie Shart, (Casablanca), Nature et paysage, Société Générale, (Casablanca), Insoumission, (Marrakech Genève, New York), Persona, Yakin & Boaz gallery, Casablanca, Morocco.
