Tafraout, Anti-atlas mountains, Marocco: 1984 multidimensional work, at different sizes on a granit site at 1200 meters high, in the Anti-Atlas, near Tafraoute, Morocco. In 1984, Belgian artist Jean Vérame found his way from Tafraoute to the squat desolate valley. Since then, the blue rocks of Tafraout are the most famous element of Tafraoute’s granite landscape. They were coloured with the help of the Tafraoute fire brigade and 18 tonnes of blue, pink, red, and black paint. This peculiar and controversial work of art is still both marvelled at, questioned and deplored today despite significant weathering over time. A recent renovation project is restoring some of the site to its former glory.
