Opening : 22 Oct, 2015
Jérôme Poggi is pleased to present the first solo show of Kapwani Kiwanga at the gallery. Entitled "Continental Shift", the show is part of the "Afrotunnel" project, currently developed by the artist. It refers to a hypothetic tunnel linking Europe to Africa via the strait of Gibraltar, that has been studied for a number of years but has yet to be realised. Parallel to this exhibition, the gallery presents at FIAC (Secteur Lafayette) a solo show untitled "Flowers for Africa" by Kapwani Kiwanga and publishes an interview with Natasa Petresin-Bachelez.
The Afrotunnel project is developped with support of Centre National des Arts Plastiques (soutien pour une recherche artistique).
