J'ai tué le papillon dans mon oreille
/ I killed the butterfly in my ear
/ Exhibition Of Minia Biabiany
EXHIBITION JANUARY 30 - JUNE 7, 2020
This immersive exhibition will take us on a journey to the artist’s Caribbean home. The vast installation, composed of scrap materials and video projections, draws inspiration from the blindness of the artist’s ancestor, the contaminated atmosphere of her native island, and the local population rendered defenseless in the face of environmental threat. The evanescent, poetic quality of Biabiany’s work compels us to pay heed to the neglected aspects of French colonial history, which endures through pernicious acts of covert violence.
