Information on the activity

January 18, 2024 to February 24, 2024

From January 18 to February 24, 2024.

The exhibition presents a series of intimate paintings and drawings featuring black female figures inspired by Denver, a fictional character from Toni Morrison’s novel "Beloved." These paintings offer narrative spaces conducive to reflection and repose for the protagonists. By transposing literary references into the pictorial field, the artist explores the impact of fiction on the construction of reality. Through dream fragments, literary narrative mingles with the artist’s sociological imagination, multiplying representations of Denver to encourage introspective reflection and empathetic connection.
