"Binidittu" is out!

Binidittu, the fourth book of my long-term project Cham, is out! Published by L’ARTIERE, design by Ramon Pez.Included in the book and along with my text, there are beautiful essays by Igiaba SCEGO, Doudou DIÈNE and Alagie JINCANG, addressing the multiple significance of Benedict today in the context of Mediterranean migration and contemporary forms of (in)visibillity of African diaspora. Passages from writer Ralph ELLISON's book The Invisible Man, a seminal work of African-American literature, feature throughout Binidittu along with interviews and archives. The book was made in Italy by L’Artiere with the support of Fond de Dotation Buchet-Ponsoye, Prix Elysée and Cnap.

Exhibitions

The wisdom of the Lianas: The Open Boat

The video installation La barque ouverte is displayed for the first time as part of La Sagesse des lianes, a group exhibition by curator Dénétem Touam Bona at CIAP Vassivière. This video is a collaboration with writer and director Hugo Rousselin. Made from an unpublished film archive produced as part of the CHAM project, La barque ouverte is a reference to a text spoken by Edouard Glissant, the preface to the Poetics of Relation in which Glissant thus sums up the experience of abyss of slavery of Africans and rebirth through resistance.
