Selection from Nothing's In Vain
In 2011, Emmanuelle Andrianjafy arrived in the port city of Dakar, situated on the westernmost African coast, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. 'Nothing’s in Vain' is Andrianjafy’s response to the experience of uprooting to the Senegalese capital, a city as vibrant as it is disorientating. Embracing the chaos of an unfamiliar world, the artist
takes us on an exploratory journey through a metropolis in constant flux between construction and deconstruction. The sequence of images she presents careens between street scenes, portraits, landscapes, and close-up details, recreating her fluctuating experience of the multiple faces of the city.
