ALAWO (PANIC)


"Ritual and art cannot but contain the concerned individual's own proportions." (Susanne Wenger) Vellum, dried sheep or goat skin, was used for medieval bookmaking before paper was introduced. Ink changes its appearance when used on its original medium and becomes glossy and shiny like lacquer. Moussa Kone uses the blank space - the texture of the skin, with all its pores and scars - for this new series of drawings.
