CHEIKHOU BA & MAMADY SEYDI

XEET: SCULPTURE AND DRAWING

CURATED BY SALAMATA DIOP

EXHIBITION:

14th OCTOBER - 2nd DECEMBER 2015

XEET is a Wolof word rich in definition. It is partly lost in translation yet brings us back to what links us in our differences. It can be translated as “race”, “people”, “group”, or even “culture”, and corresponds to the inclusive notion of what is shared, what exists, what we all have ‘in common’, what creates unity. This term is therefore devoid of the notions of otherness and separation carried by “cosaan” which means “tradition”, “history” or “nit” which means “man”, “humanity” and by its English equivalents. Through their works, Cheikhou Bâ and Mamady Seydi address 'Xeet' each in their own way and from different materials.
