Lives and works in Tétouan (Morocco).

Safaa Erruas graduated in 1998 at the Institut National des Beaux-Arts. She currently lives and works in Tétouan. She has had numerous exhibitions in important foreign museums, such as the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Muhka Museum in Antwerp, the Kunstforening Oslo, the Musée de Marrakech, the MoCADA Museum in New York, the Arab World Institute in Paris and the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi; as well as participating in festivals and biennials, such as the recent Havana Biennial (2015), the Alexandria Biennial (2010) and the Dakar Biennial in Senegal (2006 and 2002).

Her works intertwine grace and pain, emotion and danger, in a game of mirrors where the apparent charm is broken, to make room for dangerous items taken from daily life. Needles, broken glass, sharp syringes or wires condense behind the illusion of delicate and innocent installations, in double-edged-sword that seduces and then betrays the viewer.
