Stories help define the value of spontaneous creation when one is looking to interpret and represent the socio-economic realities of the subject and of the collective. To merge – through art – traditions and innovations, memories and dreams of the future. Aboudia represents an African society torn in its social fabric. Armand Boua portrays the human condition as a response to the inhumanity that dominates the world. Frédéric Bruly Bouabré is one of the founding fathers of contemporary African art. Aron Demetz explores the world through a parallel sculptural universe inhabited by fictional creatures and mysterious forms. Laetitia Ky denounces, through the metamorphosis of the body, the modern definitions of the contemporary human condition. Yeanzi reinterprets an iconography capable of transforming the experiences of the past into a powerful expressive form for the future.
