Solo show « Palimpsestes », Galerie Artset, Limoges 02/10/19 > 09/11/19
Through this new exhibition, Kouka questions the relation between international trade and human life. Witnesses of globalized international exchanges, these jute bags symbolize for the artist the ideal of a world without borders. Torn apart, stitched up, patched up, they are like bodies that would carry the traces of their wanderings ... These manufactured objects, hold a memory and make us understand that Kouka's portraits can be read as a palimpsest.
