Almost two years after Tunisia's famous revolts, artist eL Seed returns to his hometown Gabes, for his biggest artistic challenge yet. He has five weeks, during the height of summer in the month of Ramadan, to adorn both sides of Tunisia's tallest minaret on Jara mosque. Tacapes is the story of a project which almost failed, an artist who never gave up, and a town that inspired the Revolution in countless ways.
"This project in my hometown, Gabes, has been the most challenging project I've ever done, emotionally, physically and mentally." (eL Seed)
