Malala Andrialavidrazana, Marius Dansou

Infatigable voyageuse, l’artiste Malala Andrialavidrazana s’est également formée à l’architecture. Ses recherches portent sur les notions de frontières et d'interactions interculturelles. En une succession d'allers-retours entre espaces privés et problématiques mondiales, l’artiste explore les différentes imageries sociales par le biais d’un travail anthropologique ouvrant sur une multitude d’histoires. out en s'inspirant des archives photographiques du grand photographe nigérian Ojeikere et d’archives familiales, Marius Dansou réalise, dans du fer à béton, des coiffes majestueuses dont il cherche à décoder les messages.

Retracing their diversity, the exhibition will allow visitors an understanding of the universality of the contemporary Africa scene south of the Sahara, unveiling the immediate and growing spirit,without hiding the violence and matching immediacy of the worlds that make it up.

After a year’s discussion, the objective of this Biennale has settled as “Every Skyscraper is Built from the Ground”, which describes the process of art development during the history and emphasizes its base. The objective also metaphorizes that everything develops from nothing, symbolizes that image art are ubiquitous and influenced all trades and professions, and manifests the Biennale‘s ambition to enter into the public full-fledged.

Deep Memory (Djupt Minne)

Deep Memory may in part investigate colonial traces, but most of all it wants to introduce a number of powerful artistic visions in a contemporary arts museum that is seeking relevance in a conversation that is transnational – in a way that we have now come to live an existence that is hugely dependent on a global conversation, facing challenges such as increasing gaps between rich and poor and fights over resources that send people on the move. 
Exhibition co-curated by Joanna Sandell and Breeze Yoko

The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Crafts in Mali and the Institut français are pleased to announce the 10th Bamako Encounters, African Biennale of Photography Telling Time, which explores the complex and multifaceted relationship between images and time. Inspired by both Mali’s rich cultural traditions of storytelling and the nation’s recent political upheavals, the forthcoming edition questions the methods by which artists narrate real and imagined experiences through different economies of time. In chronicling how artists address the unpredictable and consequential relationship between political action, social experience, and aesthetic experience, Telling Time offers a multiplicity of perspectives from which to assess the biennale’s enduring role as an international convener of photographic practices in Africa.

No Fixed Abode

No Fixed Abode

It is all very well to go travelling, but one of the inescapable consequences of letting go or getting lost is that you can never really go home as the same “someone” that you were before. During the history of Modernity, most people thought the loss of “home” was a tragedy: today, art suggests it may sometimes be one of life’s little necessities.
– Kobena Mercer

This spring The New Church Museum presents No Fixed Abode, an exhibition curated by Candice Allison, that features the work of a diverse group of African artists, all of whom present works that address the ephemeral nature of home. A fundamental characteristic of contemporary art is the constant movement of artists and artworks, curators and cultural producers, ideas, concepts and information. Thomas McEvilly describes this as cultural nomadism, referring to persons who regularly travel, migrate, cross boundaries; who literally have no fixed home. Using this as a starting point, No Fixed Abode offers a platform for dialogue about how artists negotiate notions of home, nationality and identity in a globalised world, and includes a combination of works drawn from The New Church Museum’s permanent collection, on loan from private and corporate collections, or produced especially for the exhibition.

Drawing on the museum’s setting within a converted house, many of the works included are concerned with shifting attitudes towards family, community and hospitality. The common thread running through the works is an ambiguity, an unease that seems to underlie the ideals of home, an acceptance, and ultimately, a letting go.

DLA Mixer

A l’occasion de la triennale SUD2013, dans le cadre du projet C.A.I.R.E, Malala Andrialavidrazana a été choisie pour intervenir à Bonamouti-Deïdo. Dans ce quartier ancien, situé au bord du fleuve, subsistent encore beaucoup de modestes constructions en « carabotte », cet assemblage horizontal de planches de bois qui se superposent. 

La photographe malgache a expérimenté pour l’occasion une technique de fresque photographique réalisée par transfert sur la surface murale d’images imprimées par laser sur support papier. Malala a patiemment photographié des produits du marché aux vivres, de la vaisselle de tôle émaillée couramment utilisée dans la restauration de rue à Douala, des préparations culinaires locales, pour en faire une riche et colorée composition de grand format qu’elle a transféré sur la façade principale de la bâtisse.
