|B. Toguo Tamokoué||1||group show|
The next exhibition of the Centre genevois de gravure contemporaine will be dedicated to two young artists: Toguo Tamokoué (born in 1967 in Cameroon, lives and works in Grenoble, Düsseldorf and Abidjan) and Hinrich Sachs (born in 1962 in Osnabrück, lives and works in Hamburg) who received both the purse of CGGC / 1996, giving them the opportunity to produce an edition in engraving or in any technical feasible in our workshops. This exhibition is the result of several coincidences, among others, the choice of our jury that focused on two artists who wanted to meet and who, further to their meeting, projected a common journey in Ivory Coast. This project was developed on the basis of their respective personal experiences and their linguistic and artistic journey: each of them lived the experience of immigration and had to leave a native language to a foreign language. Thus, their history and their artistic practice led them to end up in Europe today, and maybe tomorrow in Africa.
