Pélagie GbaguidiBenin/BelgiumVisual Arts2018

Pélagie Gbaguidi lives and works in Brussels. Gbaguidi calls herself a contemporary "Griot". In the practical sense, it breaks the commonplace rhythm by inserting subtle incidents integrating its part of eternity. Her work is an anthology of signs and traces on trauma. Her focus of interest is centered on colonial and postcolonial archives and on unmasking the process of forgetting in history. This readjustment of the imaginary arouses in the artist the urgency to give it form, a writing of liberating images and a corpus to draw contemporary forms. She has participated in numerous international exhibitions.
