Sweden - Malmö Konsthall - Pascale Marthine Tayou - Always All Ways. Omnes Viae Malmö Ducunt01/06/2010
May 22 – August 22, 2010
Pascale Marthine Tayou (*1967, Cameroon, lives and works in Ghent, Belgium. ) works with sculptures and large-scale installations both within institutional and public spaces. The exhibition Always All Ways. Omnes Viae Malmö Ducunt at Malmö Konsthall brings different subject matters into focus and the audience will encounter issues and aspects of cultural mixing with a particularly attentive and sensitive gaze to the common environmental foundation which different cultures of the entire world are depending on.
Pascale Marthine Tayou has created new works specially for Malmö Konsthall. The core of the exhibition consists of ten small house-like structures, a jumble of garden houses. This installation, called Garden houses, appears and recalls a shantytown built out of photographic images and recycled materials, mixing both found material from Tayou's native country Cameroon and commercial packaging and waste products associated with western cultures. The visual noise and the material used create a disorientating, chaotic experience for the visitor.
The exhibition has been realized with support from students of Östra Grevie School of Art, Sweden, and Sølyst Artist in Residence Center (SAIR), Jyderup, Denmark.
