When investigating events that profoundly interfered in the landscape of Western Sahara, a desert territory with low population density in the south of Morocco and whose autonomy, under dispute, is claimed by the Saharawi Republic, El Montassir came across a silent environment, haunted by a complex socio-political background. Faced with human silence in relation to traumatic events, the various forms of life in the desert appear as a way to revive the erased collective memory and recognize its relevance in the battle with hegemonic narratives. His images and words give shape, texture and echo to the arid silence, feeding the animism of the stones, ashes, plants and individuals, which, beyond human consciousness, confirms the objective resistance of memory in the face of time and the established power.
