The Day After Yesterday – By Salah Bouanani

The latest Shrill Cats feature is a beautiful journey into a type of fictional reality through the eyes of artist Salah Bouanani.  This dreamy series reminds us of a hazy day dream, a memory, and a place that is both familiar and forsaken.   Some of her many influences include artists such as Graciela Iturbíde, Flor Garduño, Emett Gowin, Mary-Ellen Clarck, William Eggleston, Diane Arbus, and many others. She is touched by what these individuals bring to her life – a feeling that is best described as the fringe between the magical and the super lucid.

In her own words:

When I’ve made this project named « The day after yesterday »

I wanted to catch the magical presence under the familiar.
Touching the quiet power and the presence of the energy of things that will happen before they happen.
I called it « The day before yesterday  » because I am obsessed with timelines overlapping each other.
A trip, from The first waters in the morning mist, to the primal cells.
A one-way trip; an escape from the city to the river.
The mystery of what is there now and what will be in the same point.
This point hiding between two footsteps, or in the little space between the inhale and the exhale.
The place where everything is possible.
Then I can remember, that I have forgotten everything.
