The rebel

A minute too heavy or too beautiful weight on me since a long time

First tempting voice

I am the Red Hour, the  undone Red Hour

Second tempting voice

I am the hour of nostalgias, the hour of miracles..

General theme: I am the Red Hour, the undone hour, red. The red hour is an expression borrowed from Aimé Césaire in his play “and the dogs went silent” THAT talks about emancipation, freedom and responsibility.

Dak’Art 2018: The Red Hour

The Red Hour is the coming of age. It is the moment when one emancipates oneself from what has been by transforming it and giving it a new strength. It is the hour of metamorphosis and transformation.

Title of the International Exhibition: A new Humanity

This new humanity is referring to a Frantz Fanon’s text where the Martinique psychiatrist defines the decolonised man as “a new man”.
