Tragédie tropicale

It is this same energy and willingness (as the installation 36 Seconds) to bend the neck of preconceived ideas that infuse his aesthetic to Tragédie Tropicale (2014). By superimposing two levels of images, he evokes different levels of reflection: reality and spirituality, North-South relations, social inequalities, and belief systems, politics, and daily life. A creation that mixes two tensions: one serious, the other dazzling, to give still to feel differently.
