Venice - National Participation

Ivory Coast 2017

13 May 201726 Nov 2017

The artist’s legitimacy is based more in research than in practical results. But it generally requires a successful impact, emotion and intimacy that puts all those who come into contact with his work in a metaphorical and analogical dialogue symbiosis. The photographer Joana Choumali collects through portraits the memory of her country’s and Africa’s female social identity with delicate aesthetic images. Raimondo Galeano with its particular fluorescent pigments paintings creates a compendium of brightness and color that bring us into the duality of our lives, dream and reality. Koko Bi’s work is the result of an inner search that leads him to portray an intimate research on his own values through sculpture, searching for a creative synthesis between African and European traditions. And while Silue explores in ready used matter a new source or rebirth and uses his personal experiences to shape this transition, Watts synthetizes gestures and signs to achieve a very personal, full of vertigo collage.
