Curated by Ndayé Kouagou the presentation is led by the devil tail – Tarek will produce a series of tails sculpture that live in the booth surrounded and supported by Neila’s painting. All works have been produced especially for Art-o-rama.
If God is in charge, what does the devil do? The devil does his duty as a devil, he carries, but you know that very well, you repeat it all day long. What do you mean he carries? He carries the eye, but not just any eye, the evil eye. It’s his task and nobody else’s, he does it the best he can, he puts all his little devil’s heart to carry the 3ein. He carries it from one person to another with all the care in the world, to each his own evil eye, he delivers to each of us an intact evil eye, I would even say that he delivers it immaculate and unique. During this time, God is in charge, he plays, that would perhaps explain our situation. Once again, a bit like the deliveroo guy in case of delay, it’s their fault, we throw the stone at them and in the same way we throw the stone at the devil, a precarious worker with a physical stain. God meanwhile, is behind his screen, joystick in hand, yes joystick in the singular, but God has several joysticks, but no way to use them at the same time, God switches from one joystick to another when the mood comes to him, why does he not share his joysticks with the goddesses? Only God knows. The devil continues his duty as the devil, he carries, not only the eye, but also our faults, we see you putting on his back each of your mistakes, all that is more weight, but nobody ever cares about this kind of worker, if carrying is his task, carrying he will do.
