AfricAvenir (Hrsg.): Gerard Chenet : Mon dernier mot - Je t'aime ma vie


Price: 20.00 EUR


Gerard Chenet is an artist, architect, poet and, most important, the founder of a little paradise in the south of Dakar, Senegal called Sobo Bade. He is now 92 years old and started the project 20 years ago. Sobo Bade is a Holiday resort, right at the seaside and what is very special about this resort is that the center piece is a amphitheatre, where international dance/ music performances take place. It connects the local artists to international artists and attracts tourists as well as inhabitants. Gerard Chenet founded, planned and built this place. When i saw this beautiful place at first i was fascinated by the concept and how everything fits so nicely together. I like the idea that the arts in this case are influencing the life and day by day of many people, the inhabitants- the people passing by or staying there for a few days, that get a deep impression by having the chance to get into direct and often times personal contact with the artists. Also international artists bringing a sense and taste of the world to the village.

AfricAvenir presents you a book devoted to an extraordinary work of Gérard Chenet. The publication features numerous poems and photos from the Haitian artist.
