Kassou Seydou: Kings of the new Cities
Galerie Cécile Fakhoury, Abidjan, Ivory Coast (cote D`ivoire)24 Jun 2017 - 23 Sep 2017
The gallery Cécile Fakhoury is happy to present works by the Senegalese artist Kassou Seydou in Abidjan for the first time. This exhibition Kings of new Cities explores the duality between rural and urban life.
Kassou Seydou’s work is poetic and very close to narration and he expresses his vision of a complex and changeable world. Using a palette of warm colors and quite animated characters, Kassou Seydou presents us with a world in a constant state of disorder. The works exhibited at the gallery Cécile Fakhoury allow us to immerse ourselves in the allegoric and expressive world of the artist’s imagination. The tensions and alterations which we find in his imagined shapes and figures evoke a critique of society.
