Minia Biabiany: difé

Starting from a personal archaeology that imagines the body as a territory of relationships itself caught in a web of relationships, Minia Biabiany transposes a real geographical place marked by a traumatic past into a vast psychological landscape.

Palais de Tokyo, 13 Av. du Président Wilson, 75116

Minia Biabiany questions relationships to territory and places in the Caribbean and Guadeloupean contexts – their poetics, their colonial history, and their present-day existence as a dominated territory under pressure to assimilate.

Entitled “difé”, the Creole word for “fire”, Minia Biabiany’s solo exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo includes natural, processed or manufactured materials, realities and fictions, figures and metaphors that intermingle and punctuate the spaces of the Palais, at once constraining and orienting the public’s circulation and gaze by imposing a certain slowness on their bodies.
