Pascale Marthine Tayou

Pascale Marthine Tayou givese art made out of the rest materials of a contemporary nomadic existence both a second life and a new sense of urgency in installations that allow best to be read as the temporal materializations of the encounters of an 'urban dweller'. His early work is about the accumulation of things, the production of an open field of encounters in an attempt to reach 'the other'. Tayou uses the strategy of 'détournement' to illustrate that culture is both collectible and dispensable. His work provides a forum for activating global exchange, dialogue, translation and untranslatability.
