L’Africeur de Bogolan (Vêtements)

Narcisse Tordoir


Installation, variable dimensions.
Materials: Bogolan cloth

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp.

With this technique of Bogolan, Narcisse Tordoir made a limited-edition poncho (designed by Walter Van Beirendonck) decorated with the politically charged image highlighted in the world's press in 2000. A 12 year-old Palestinian boy is shot dead in the arms of his father while trying to hide behind a barrel in the Gaza Strip. Tordoir once again came across this image on a mural painting in Islamic-majority Mali.
