I am a visual artist and I am coordinating art projects in the artists’ residence called WAAW in Saint-Louis, Senegal. This vibrant place is the epitome of all things organic and that just makes me happy and drives me into work with movement and rhythm and apparent stillness, elements that I hope to communicate in my handmade photography and video installations.
At times I sit down and roast coffee, another passion of mine. You can taste organic coffees at Ndar Ndar and while at it, Oumar can play your favourite African tune – or introduces you to new ones – to spice your coffee with. There is also a small backroom space that we use for exhibitions. Do pop in if you are in town!
