About Confusion

The artwork titled “Confusion” by Achraf Baznani is a striking example of photomontage within the realm of Surrealism, produced through the medium of photography. “Confusion” belongs to the genre of photography, yet transcends conventional boundaries by integrating elements of surreal manipulation, creating an evocative and thought-provoking piece.

In the artwork, the viewer is confronted with a scene that is both familiar and disconcerting. A figure, rendered in a diminished scale, is positioned within the confines of an open book. The person appears deep in contemplation, seated on the pages as if dwarfed by the towering expanse of text. The text itself cascades over the page’s edge, creating a wave that both shelters and overwhelms the solitary figure. This visual metaphor may suggest an individual’s envelopment by the wealth of knowledge, stories, or perhaps the overwhelming nature of information one must grapple with. The interplay of scale and the juxtaposition of human form with the printed word are classic Surrealist techniques, serving to disrupt our standard perceptions and inviting a plethora of interpretations from the viewer.
