I am a multi-cultural Gabonese artist born in Paris, France. Raised in Libreville, Gabon, I later moved to Europe to study Philosophy, Literature and Languages at the Institut Catholic de Paris in Madrid, Spain.
My practice emerges from a 30-year career where I explore a variety of media, including photography, sculpture, painting, video, sound, installation and performative works - A practice that enables me to engage with consciousness through the notion of memory, both personal and collective. In 2009, I represented the Republic of Gabon at the 53rd Venice Biennale with a solo show entitled “The Lighthouse of Memory - Go Nogé Mènè”, being the very first artist from Central Africa to exhibit solo in a National Pavilion. Through the use of archives my proposal traces the past to shape the future, honouring the title “Go Nogé Mènè” which means “building the future” in my mother tongue. My interest in memory leads me to construct new utopian worlds.
