1. "Cosmographia (île de Gorée)", 2015


    from Stephen Korytko Added 64 1 0

    by Stephen Korytko x David Brognon & Stéphanie Rollin EN A barely sketched outline or a contrario carefully mapped in the true, concrete and frightening sense of the term with Cosmographia (Gorée Island), 2015. A mad and monumental piece that physically archives the contradictory reality of the island to better organise its kidnapping. Synonymous with tourist escape in the 20th century, the island is primarily a desolate, deserted and cut-off place. A small prison territory, used as such to exclude undesirables, store them like more or less dangerous or perishable merchandise according to the times. Alcatraz, St Hélène, Makronissos and Gorée comprise a geographical and symbolic corpus with a double meaning, between evasion and confinement, that Brognon & Rollin decided to go and really trace out full-scale in situ, starting with Gorée Island (Senegal). An island that is a symbol of the trafficking and imprisonment of men by mankind, Gorée is home to the House of Slaves. Centimetre by centimetre, spanning more than 6 days, the 2,3km outline of the island was reproduced on paper, put in envelopes and sent to Brussels to be stored and classified, using an archive system chosen by the artists: a total of more than 3,064 geographical fragments and prison escapees before being reincarcerated and sealed in a merciless stainless steel shelving unit.

                Nos photos du port de Dakar et de l'île de Gorée au Sénégal, février 2006 Gorée reste tristement célèbre car elle a été choisie comme symbole de l'esclavage qui a duré pendant des décennies sur l'ensemble du territoire africain (traite arabo-musulmane et traite européenne). On peut encore y visiter la Maison dite des Esclaves dans laquelle est établi un musée dédié à ce sujet, dont le conservateur était Boubacar Joseph Ndiaye. C'est une excursion intéressante et émouvante dont voici quelques photos. Our pictures of the port of Dakar and of Goree island in Senegal, February 2006. Goree remains infamous as it was chosen as the symbol of slavery that lasted for decades on the whole African territory. You can still visit the so-called Slave House in which is established a museum dedicated to this topic, the curator is Boubacar Joseph Ndiaye. It was an interesting and moving excursion, here are a few photos. http://fenotte2003.sharepoint.com/Pages/Senegal.aspx
