Musée Dapper has invited five artists whose work is concerned with issues relating to speech. Thus, Ndary Lo (Senegal), Bill Kouélany (Congo), Thierry Fontaine (Reunion Island), Trân Trong Vû (Vietnam / France) and Nadia Myre (Canada) have made outdoor installations on two exceptional sites on Gorée Island. Comics – the 'ninth art' – have been around for nearly 100 years in sub-Saharan Africa. They offer a space of freedom for words and images.
Al'Mata (Democratic Republic of Congo / France), Jason Kibiswa (Democratic Republic of Congo), Odia (Senegal), Hector Sonon (Benin) and TT Fons (Senegal) have created original stories, each with a style marked by many influences.
