“The Open Shadows of Memory” features works revolving around the topic of the mother earth considered as guardian of the human kind’s memories. The exhibition gathers multidisciplinary artists: Ernest Dükü works on the limits between painting, sculpture and installations; Ananias Léki Dago documents in his black and white photographies the life of  new African generations. Valérie Oka investigates the past of her country through drawings, photographies and installations while Tong Yanrunan’s painted portraits describe a varied humanity avoiding any social or emotional connotation.
