The group exhibition « Je suis moi-même le soleil » brings together the works of de Leonard Pongo, Nú Barreto, M’barka Amor, Hakeem Adam and Valerie Asiimwe Amani who question the expressions of the Senegalese film producer Ousmane Sembène until May 14, 2022 in the premises of 31 Project located at 31 rue de Seine in Paris.
The exhibition « Je suis moi-même le soleil » presents the perspectives that would be preponderant to the inflexible change of our contemporary social orders and allows each one to reclassify his place and therefore his environment. Each of the artists leads interrogations in connection with our environment when we are crossed by some real time-spaces and factors? How do we consider geographies and superimpose cosmogonies to make a new diasporic reality ?
Under the direction of Liz Gomis, consultant to the general curator of the Africa2020 Season, she recently co-coordinated the report on the prefiguration of the Maison des Mondes Africains sent by the Elysée for a reflection by Achille Mbembe.
Through the exhibition « Je suis moi-même le soleil », Liz Gomis puts in dialogue the works of the Ghanaian Hakeem Adam whose multidisciplinary practice studies the advanced and current ways of behaving with installations that use sound as an impressive narrative gadget, those of M’barka Amor who places his body at the center of his creative reflection and constantly questions contemporary society, predispositions, customs and organization of thought, Valerie Asiimwe Amani whose investigations question the discernments and translations of the body while using suggestion and its language corresponding to the spaces where it is sent, Nú Barreto who has shaped his own language and, moreover, has developed a multidisciplinary and political practice in his creations and Leonard Pongo who considers photography as an instrument to reappropriate his Congolese culture and records with a concern for strangeness the daily life of the big cities of Congo.
The group exhibition « Je suis moi-même le soleil » is open from 31 Project until 14 May 2022.
