Ndayé Kouagou

There is nothing worse than something that is kind of the same but, not really the same. That’s disgusting! Imagine buying something thinking it’s some specific thing and it finally appears to not really be that thing but a thing that is kind of the same but not really the same, pure treason!

That’s the feeling I have about 2020 and 2021. Yes, it was two tough years, but rest assured even from these two tough years there are things to pull out.

All the pieces that are going to be shown as part of the booth, answer questions. I don’t know if they are the questions you needed the answer to, but who doesn’t like some answers in life?

An exhibition about answering questions you didn’t know you needed the answer to.

 

Ndayé Kouagou (born in 1992 in Paris, France) is an artist and performer based in Paris, his practice always starts from texts of which he is the author. Voluntarily or involuntarily confused, he tries as best as he can to bring a reflection on these 3 topics; legitimacy, freedom and love. The result is… what it is. He describes his work as “quite interesting, but not that interesting or maybe not interesting at all”. He has presented his work among others at Auto Italia South East (London), Centrale Fies (Dro/Italy) and Lafayette Anticipation (Paris) where he also launched his publishing project YBR* (Young Black Romantics).
