With the aim of promoting Caribbean creation, Concept'Art also wishes to raise awareness of the artist's notions of touch and trace. In addition to being open to the general public, the exhibition incorporates an educational approach aimed at a school audience.


Artist's approach

As part of the "Horizons Telluriques" exhibition, Florence Poirier-Nkpa produced a kit work of 2m30x2m30. “For this work, I chose oil painting which differs from my usual technique which is more oriented towards collage. Explains Florence Poirier-Nkpa. This work is the fruit of a reflection on the possibility of a horizon comparable to a line leading to a target that represents the goals that everyone, as a human being, seeks to achieve before the end.

The artist's universe will be highlighted during a stage of the exhibition scheduled for 2019. “It will then be a work on the notion of meeting and self-discovery through the other ( and vice versa). This is why I work a lot on the portrait and wonder about the look of the other. ”
