Europa Oxalà

Catalogue d'exposition

ISBN: 9789723618754 (PB - EN)

The Europa Oxalà exhibition presents the works of twenty-one European artists and intellectuals whose family origins lie in the former colonies. These "children of empires", born and raised in a postcolonial context, offer a reflection on their heritage, their memory and their identity. Their parents and grandparents were born and lived in Congo, Angola, Guinea, Benin, Algeria, Madagascar; and these artists inherited not only voices, sounds and gestures, but also images and memories of their cultures of origin, the starting point of an important work of research in the historical archives. As a result, their artistic productions nourish an original reflection on racism, the decolonization of the arts, or the deconstruction of colonial thought. The way in which some of them combine contemporary languages ??and traditional processes is an essential contribution for contemporary Europe. The innovative and transnational character of the work of these "post-memory" artists has also deeply marked the artistic and cultural scene over the past two decades. Europa Oxalà presents around sixty works (paintings, drawings, sculptures, films, photos, installations) by twenty-one artists: Aimé Mpane, Aimé Ntakiyica, Carlos Bunga, Délio Jasse, Djamel Kokene-Dorléans, Fayçal Baghriche, Francisco Vidal, John K Cobra, Katia Kameli, Mohamed Bourouissa, Josèfa Ntjam, Malala Andrialavidrazana, Márcio de Carvalho, Mónica de Miranda, Nú Barreto, Pauliana Valente Pimentel, Pedro AH Paixão, Sabrina Belouaar, Sammy Baloji, Sandra Mujinga, Sara Sadik. Through their work, Europa Oxalà bears witness to the creative power of contemporary European cultural diversity, opening up new perspectives to the notion of Europe.
