« Create to bear witness. This is the credo of Barthélémy Toguo, who has invaded the international art scene this year! »

For this monographic exhibition, the director of the Dapper Foundation, Christiane Falgayrettes-Leveau, has given the Cameroonian artist carte blanche. Curious about the world around him, Barthélémy Toguo is an observer of many cultures. This is reflected in his multiple productions with a strong social dimension. An engaged art that denounces the problems of our world through the links between Africa and Europe, discrimination, wars and abuse of power, among others. A diverse art form that unfolds here in several forms: watercolours, monumental installations, paintings, ceramics, sculptures and photographs take over the Foundation's space. The artist's works are in direct dialogue with ancient African pieces and question our humanity and the injustices of our contemporary world.
