RICHARD TAITTINGER GALLERY is excited to present Colorful Line, a solo exhibition of works by the acclaimed Cameroonian artist Pascale Marthine Tayou, curated by Jérôme Sans in collaboration with GALLERIA CONTINUA, San Gimignano / Beijing / Les Moulins / Habana. This is the most ambitious and comprehensive exhibition of Pascale Marthine Tayou’s work in the United States, and includes a range of artworks from 2006 through 2018.
The exhibition Colorful Line has been conceived as a journey within Tayou’s universe: a deliberately mobile, heterogeneous work. Deeply linked to his own “voyager mind”, Tayou’s work comes into contact with what is other to the self. His objects, sculptures, installations, drawings and videos have a recurrent feature in common: they dwell upon an individual moving through the world and exploring the issue of global village. His work is the perfect consequence of how diversity and plurality are at play, forming our global realities.
Pascale Marthine Tayou has created his own vocabulary out of images and forms from the West and beyond: from society’s rejects and waste, national and economic symbols, and artistic references. Tayou expresses himself with simple materials, as a lush “anti-production” of the Western worlds. He embraces the world’s connected realities, bringing together non-tangible impressions and materials, fragments of moments he collects from the succession of places he inhabits, whether for an hour or for ten years.
