Maïmouna Guerresi



Co-Organizer: Italian Cultural Institute in Osaka

Shimadai Gallery

Maïmouna Guerresi, is an Italian-Senegalese multimedia artist working with photography, sculpture, video and installation. Her work presents an intimate perspective on the spiritual ideas of human beings in relation to their inner mystical dimensions. Maïmouna’s images become an appreciation of a shared humanity beyond psychological, cultural and political boundaries. The hybrid embrace of her work towards the spirituality and ancestry of African, Asian and European cultures mirrors her own embrace of globalization in art and life. Recurring metaphors milk, light, the hijab, trees and contrasting black and white create an awareness of the vital unifying qualities of Islamic spirituality. The figures and scenes presented by the artist take on a new light, that of a universal truth about community and the soul wherein the person becomes a sacred dwelling, or a meeting place for humanity to rediscover our shared mystical body.
