Pascale Marthine Tayou exhibition at Mudam – Luxembourg

18/06/2011 – 11/09/2011

The Ghent-based Cameroon-born artist Pascale Marthine Tayou is part of a generation of African
 artists who tackle post-colonial issues by mixing the experiences they have of their countries
 of origin with those they have of the western world.

Pascale Marthine Tayou has been invited to come up with a work for the Grand Hall of Mudam.
 His answer is Home Sweet Home, an installation taking the form of a city perched 
16 feet up, set on a wooden structure.

…And two works presented in the exhibition Walking through… Collection Mudam

  1. Interesting stuff! I'm not a big fan of modern art but some of it looks great when it's photographed. I really like your bottom two shots!


  2. And I like your first two shots!
    A friend and I have been discussing the problems facing women in post-colonial Africa. No matter what problems we have here in North America, we are much better off than they are.
    I love the city-balanced-on-poles concept.

  3. Cezar and Leia, thanks for this most interesting post. It is quite different from many other of your posts.


  4. I love your presentation of the modern art. It must have been amazing to see in person. (I get the sense from the first artist that western culture tends to be quite materialistic compared to his homeland.) With art this colorful and creative, it is a beautiful way to begin the weekend. Enjoy :^)


  5. Those first two exhibits are just wild! I'd love to see them personal and up close! Terrific symbolism. Great photos of all the exhibits!

    Hope you have a super weekend!

    And thank you very much for the information and your insight on the Russian population in Luxembourg. Interesting!


  6. Not my kind of art.I understand the spirit behind, but don't like the result.Anyway, it's interesting to discover it!

    PS: What did you see in Berlin? this is one of my favorite towns on earth, did you love it?


  7. Que instalações fantásticas! As fotos estão brilhantes e fazem-lhes, seguramente, justiça. Adorei!
