El Mundo Sans le Corps - solo by Pelagie Gbaguidi (Oct. 3, 2016)

 The paintings on canvas, and drawings on paper from her new project El Mundo Sans le Corps, have an intensity similar to that which you get from a great poem, or opera. That sense of layered meanings, of moment and eternity or fragility and force in one. 

The work of Gbaguidi’s hand moves and mediates characters between acts of living and re-living present and past, and serves to suspend audiences in her vision of a ‘real’ mythology.
