Group show at Fondation Blachère, Centre d'art, Gare de Bonnieux, France.

29 June 2023 - 9 March 2024

This inaugural exhibition brings together artists from across Africa and its diaspora.

“Chimeras” results from the exploration of the limits between reality and imagination, it immerses the visitor in a world populated by hybrid creatures with metaphorical accents. In this set of works, the new chimeras of the 24 artists presented address themes conducive to transcendence, such as tales and bestiaries, creation and the in-between worlds, hybridity and identity.

The theme of this exhibition germinated in Ouagadougou, when Oumar Ball won the first jury prize at the BISO for his sculpture Chimère .

The theme opens a wide field for creation both for its interpretation and for its plastic transcription. Commonly, it invites illusion, utopia, returns to mythology, when the gods, guarantors of the order of the world, commission the heroes to defeat these monsters emerging from chaos and whose archetype is the Etruscan sculpture of 'Arezzo with three heads.

This choice of subject proved to be more relevant throughout the “production” of the exhibition since it summarizes our different actions.
