Fatoumata Fathy Sidibe
Les masques parlent aussi...
"An initiatory journey into the mysterious world of masks and some emblematic faces."
My aesthetic approach is characterised by an inspiration drawn from the epic breath of my ancestors, the reference to various artistic currents, the passage from the three-dimensional to the two-dimensional, the work on colour and forms. This work is the symbol of my cultural mixing.
It is as if, immersed in the bewitching atmosphere of these works, the visitor expects, at the bend in the path, to witness the dance of the masks on the terrace where the deceased is watched over, or to hear them laugh or cry in a secret language accessible only to them.
The masks unfold masterfully on the shores of African cultural heritage.
