L'Africeur de Bogolan
Object, 237 x 130 cm.
Materials: Bogolan cloth
Collection: Collectie M HKA, Antwerp.
This work from the Malian artist Bréhima Konê is a 'Bogolan Artistique' illustrating a heaven-ascending figure. Striking, too, is that the work only received its final note in Antwerp from fashion designer Dirk van Saene, appointing it with stars made from aluminum foil. This works hangs in an ensemble of deceased artists whom, according to Narcisse Tordoir, received (next to) no recognition during their lifetimes, only to come to artistic notice posthumously.
