Craving for Humanity

The world of Barthélémy Toguo

Free rein at the Fondation Dapper: Cameroonian artist Barthélémy Toguo. Sensitive, socially-aware art that explores the failed workings of today’s world so as to critique them, drawing on African cultures.

From watercolours of suffering bodies, sometimes strewn with nails, to monumental installations asking questions about our planet’s future, the angle of intimate and collective experiences is used by the Fondation Dapper to explore the works of Barthélémy Toguo in a monograph coordinated by the foundation’s director, Christiane Falgayrettes-Leveau.

Following an original theme, some of the artist’s works are compared with pieces of old African art. Barthélémy Toguo (born 1967) is a central, pioneering figure in the international art world. He lives and works between Cameroon and France. Through his creations, he seeks to raise social wareness. Driven by the need to create in order to make statements, he designs works that respond directly to the upheavals of today’s world (wars, abuse of power, immigration, famine and dangers). Using a range of techniques—from drawing, watercolour and sculpture to photography, performance and installation art— Barthélémy Toguo uses a range of techniques to ask us questions about our humanity.
