NOW - VICTOR SONNA 1525

It's not easy to see very far on your own, but you can see more in pairs.

The number on the shackles 152, is a guiding principle in the exhibition, which bears the title '1525', the year of the first transports in the transatlantic slave trade. Sonna made 52 prints and incorporated 152 works into a 25-metre high scaffolding installation in the museum's tower.

EBOGO AWU NYON - RIEN D'IMPOSSIBLE

Only when you have deep roots yourself can you be truly open to all that is new.
The water from heaven penetrates the earth to bear fruit.
The blacksmith joins his tools to forge the iron.
One foot joins the other to walk.

MAN MINGA- HIDDEN ICONS

May your work have an effect similar to that of a baobab seed.
None of us was brought up with arm strength alone.
We are where we are today because someone bent down to help us.

MANEU VA A - À DIEU L'ENFANCE

A human step exists by virtue of the contradiction between the two feet; opposites are complementary.
Every symbol has one, two or more meanings depending on whether it is day or night.
That is the iron law of dualism.

NOBODY GIVES A SHIT ABOUT RIETVELD IN MALI

It means “field of reed''
