THE PRIORITY PRINCIPLE


Moussa Kone’s new drawings are based on photographs he took with his mobile phone, a well-known and popular practice in everyday life. Like today in social media the private life becomes public, the artist here staged himself for the setup of the exhibition entitled „The Priority Principle“. He translates the quickly taken photographic images into time-consuming ink drawings, adding surreal elements. The last work of this series is drawn on skin itself. Using the medieval medium of a goat’s raw hide for a selfie-like drawing Moussa Kone demonstrates how visual images shape our identities throughout the history.
