The use of international communication languages – English, French, Spanish and Arabic – is a major geopolitical, economic and cultural issue. In many ex-colonies multilingualism has led to profound transformations in the way things are named and has broken down barriers between the worlds of oral and written transmission.
The use of more than one language by a writer is something that stimulates – often consciously – his work and thinking. But what of the artists who have chosen to use words in their work? What is their visual and sonic significance? The thematic of the book Forms and Words uses these questions to highlight artistic approaches that, though open to contemporary realities, also draw on each artist’s cultural heritage. Musée Dapper has invited five artists who speak French and at least one other language, and 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.
