Galerie Cécile Fakhoury is pleased to present Un est multiple, the first solo exhibition of Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux (born in 1995 in Les Abymes, Guadeloupe; lives and works in Paris, France) in the space of her Project Room in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
A series of portraits taken from family memories. Scenes of life from which emanate the rustle of foliage, the warmth of a late afternoon sun, the colours of history and within them, the diverse nuances of cultures. From one work to another, Elladj Lincy Deloumeaux plunges us into a pictorial narrative where anecdotes of a personal history and the chronicles of a plural world are intermingled. Un est multiple takes us back to the African cosmogonies that populate the artist’s life as well as his canvases. The constant mixing of references, the superimposition of temporalities, the symbols present in each work, everything leads us into a sensory experience whose ancestral Guadeloupean roots radiate to a contemporary Africa and vice versa.
With this first personal exhibition of the young artist, the Galerie Cécile Fakhoury pursues an ambitious work of promotion and support of the emerging contemporary scene in Africa and through its diaspora. In March 2020, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, the Cécile Fakhoury Gallery opens the “Project Room”, an exhibition space located opposite the main gallery and dedicated to young creation as well as special projects.
