Claude Lemand. It takes unshake­able faith for Nasser Al-Aswadi to pro­claim his Anger and con­tinue to cel­e­brate Peace, Love and Hope, in these times of wars and mas­sacres of inno­cents, of mas­sive destruc­tion of mil­lennia-old her­itage, of neo-colo­nial powers and armed mili­tias fallen into blind hatred and obscu­ran­tism, of coun­tries dev­as­tated by epi­demics, famine or exile. In painting and sculp­ture, the artist says Kafa! Enough!

- Question. You trans­form the let­ters and words into visual signs strat­i­fied to create palimpsests. The col­or­less forms, cir­cles or rect­an­gles, take us to a mag­ical world rem­i­nis­cent of sacred geom­etry.

- Answer. I borrow from each ancient scroll hidden in every corner of Yemen and take them out to light, to con­tem­po­rary eyes. I use the energy of words and light. Writing is at the heart of my work: it escapes the reg­ister of pure ter­mi­nology to enter the field of the sign, of visual lan­guage.
