Be warmly welcome to visit the solo exhibition  “The World = Dialogue” with an installation, paintings and drawings of Benjamin Deguenon (Benin). Immerse yourself in Deguenon’s pictoral imaginary world, full of bizarre creatures that seem to have walked away from an ancient African fairy tale book with a touch of Basquiat and Joan Miro.

Enjoy with some drinks and bites Deguenon’s performance, his installation, paintings and drawings, and/or just meet and discuss the art works with the master himself. The exhibition remains to be seen till 10 July on wednesday-saturday between 10:00-18:00h except when we participate in art fairs or other art events.

About The World = Dialogue

In “The world = Dialogue”, the artist investigates the concept of dialogue (including its absence) and puts it as a prerequisite at the core of our very existence, To Deguenon, a dialogue is not a discourse, a line of reasoning, nor a compromise or conclusion. Its rather a sincere and continuous exchange of ideas or needs between any actor in our current contemporary world, be it humans, animals, plants or any other actor. Its a cross-examination with a true willingness to reach out to share, understand and support the other. It allows to constantly re-balance and reshape the world we live in.

As such dialogue is revealed in the order and balance of nature, in the harmony of a village, in the specificity of a community, in the solidarity around a project, or as an injustice, as it is revealed in the disorder created by its absence
