Hyères 2012 – Dotation : Namsa Leuba


“I am an African-European, born in Switzerland and my project was accomplished on a trip to Guinea Conakry. In this work I was interested in the construction and deconstruction of the body, as well as the depiction of the invisible. I have studied ritual artifacts common to the cosmology of Guineans, statuettes that are part of a ceremonial structure. They are from another world and are the roots of the living. Thereby, I sought to touch the untouchable. Modesty, luck, fecundity or a channel for exorcism – these statuettes embody a cultural value through what they represent or symbolise. In this work, I transform these objects, cosmological symbols of a community, which traditionally have a signification when used as part of rituals.”
