At the French Institute of Fès, Agathe Simon presents a solo exhibition by Badr El Hammami to the public stating that he has been detained in the Rif region for family-related reasons. She then reveals, in complicity with the Moroccan artist, that Badr is one of her fictional characters and that this exhibition is actually hers. Finally, she finishes her presentation by thanking Badr for this f ruitful collaboration.
