« Métamorphoses ondulatoires » is the theme of the independent exhibition of the Senegalese craftsman Serigne Ibrahima Dieye, which is required for the tenth edition of Partcours until February 26, 2022 at the Gallery Cecile Fakhoury in Dakar.
This exhibition updates the inversion and control of information by the media. Serigne Ibrahima Dieye gives the squares a matte and dark background discovering dull openings in the premises of the Gallery.
He proposes particular characters neither human, nor creatures, nor sphinxes presented to the perspective of the guests. « Métamorphoses ondulatoires » shows scenes of encounters, rhetorical experiments, marches of eloquence and parades of indecency, and furthermore houses the installation « Glitch » which plunges the visitor into the frantic quest for importance to make a neighborhood between restrictive powers.
Serigne Ibrahima Dieye proposes to each individual who sees his works to venture back in time to have a global perspective on the future, of the universe by taking advantage of new moral stories both amusing and ironic to challenge society.
Having acquired through his work the profession of deciphering indecencies through the art of composition, Serigne Ibrahima Dieye dreams of a society obsessed with communication and appearance and invites through his artistic creations to reflection and addressing the role of each in this universe of entertainers and spectators where deceptive appearances replace correspondence and data.
