Kin-Babi: Exposition Collective

29 November 2013 - 18 January 2014 ABIDJAN

Galerie Cécile Fakhoury is pleased to present Kin-Babi a group show by Steve Bandoma, Amani Bodo, Pierre Bodo, J-P Mika, Kura Shomali, Monsengo Shula and Pathy Tshindele in Abidjan.


Gathered for one exhibition, those works by contemporary artists living in Kinshasa give us the image of the actual active and polymorphous Congolese creation. From those universes, contained in canvases, springs up forms and figures that illustrate the real or fantasized Kinshasan life.


Making up a rousing and dynamic young scene, the Congolese artists have an important place in the global artistic scene. They open a window to their everyday reality and express a universal conscience in a globalized context. Those recent works give us multiple testimony of life in Kinshasa, a city terribly living and rumbling, as Abidjan where the works of many artists can be discovered.
