Warm Heart of Africa

Mostra collettiva: Joël Andrianomearisoa / Abdoulaye Konaté / Ayana V Jackson, Cameron Platter, Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo,
Warm Heart of Africa

"By now, the art world has finally become post-colonial and actually is post-modern. The keyword of our age is integration, and no longer segregation. Artists from all parts of the world now feature at renowned art shows such as Documenta in Kassel and the Venice Biennale as part of global art discourse. African artists no longer have to solely rely on African stages, such as the one provided by the Dakar Biennale, they have become fixtures at art shows across the globe." 

Wouter Welling 
(Abdoulaye Konaté: the world in textile, Afrika Museum, 2013) 

"Joël's production and artistic attitude are beyond space and within his own time and could just as easily come from a New Yorker, a Carioca, a Kinshasan or a Parisian." 

Jean Loup Pivin 
(Joël Andrianomearisoa - the war of the senses, Revue Noire / N°26 / 1997) 

"Since the early nineties, the term Contemporary African Art has been used to define the art created within specific geo-political boundaries of the African continent, without analyzing its specificity.

The significance of artistic production should not be sought in a continental identity and unity, but rather in its transcendence due to the continuous contact with other cultures and continents and the internal changes experienced by contemporary society." 

Vitshois Mwilambwe Bondo 
(Artist Statement) 

"Il est temps de casser les codes d'un eurocentrisme qui n'a plus grand sens sur un scene mondialisées. Il faut changer les cadrages. Accepter les faits positifs, changer les paradigmes." 

Ayana V Jackson 
(interview by Oliver Bergeron)
