Vodunaut #9, 2017

The Vodunaut series was born from a fascination for cowry shells, space navigation, the times to come, and this question : what if a future futurology was based on Fa?

Fa (or Ifa) is a West African philosophy and geomancy system, widespread in Benin as well as Nigeria (and present in Brazil) that involves cowry shells, both as objects and symbols.

Its particularity resides in the fact that it not only describes an array of possible futures but also how one should navigate them.

Emo de Medeiros

Emo de Medeiros lives and works in Cotonou (Benin) and in Paris. 

His practice is built around the holistic concept of 'contexture', and focuses on transculturalness, the circulations, interconnections, transformations and mutations of humans, forms, myths and merchandises in a postcolonial, globalized and digitalized world, questioning notions of origin, place, identity and culture.

His works are characterized by a serial, rhythmic and participative approach and by a mix of traditional, technological and semiological elements in transmedia forms. 

He uses a wide array of mediums including among others sculpture, video, electronic music, photography, performance art, electronic music, installations, painting or appliquéed textile.

His work has been shown internationally, in France (Centre Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo), in Germany (MARKK Hamburg), Brazil (Videobrasil Contemporary Art Festival São Paulo), United Kingdom, Japan, China, in the biennales of Marrakech, Dakar and Casablanca.

50 Golborne

50 Golborne investigates the convergence between contemporary art, design, and craft. Breaking down the spurious boundaries that separate these creative fields, 50 Golborne supports and promotes ambitious creative projects developed by international artists, designers, and makers.

The gallery particularly supports work that portrays and interrogates the ways in which the African continent plays a dynamic and significant role in a fast-changing global landscape.

Catering to a public of art and design collectors and connoisseurs, the gallery’s mission also extends to making its projects visible and accessible to the local community through an education programme centred around issues of urbanity and identity.
