Myriam El Haïk is a Moroccan-French artist, composer and performance artist. She lives and works in Berlin, Paris and Rabat. Her artistic language is based on specific signs and patterns and is inspired by both Moroccan and European culture. She focuses her work on the connection between music and visual art, developing systems of notation whose starting point are repetitive, minimalist musical pieces, compositions by the artist.

Thus, her works correspond to visual transcriptions of musical structures, as is equally true of her installations, videos, and performance appearances. These richly rhythmic forms of expression are complex as well as reduced, cross-media and coherent in themselves. In addition to solo and group exhibitions in Morocco and Europe, the artist has had performance appearances in Paris, London, Montreal, and New York.
