First monograph, spanning ten years of work by Senegalese artist Cheikh Ndiaye. This volume focuses more specifically on his installation practice. It includes the artist's installations realized in the public space of West African cities and the installation Hippocampus presented during a solo show at the La Maréchalerie Contemporary Art Center in Versailles and an article on Ndiaye's work by the prominent African historian Mamadou Diouf. Cheikh Ndiaye is particularly interested in architecture and urbanism. Composed of paintings, photography, and installations, his body of work is guided by a singular gaze to the informal economies of African metropolis. Retrieved from a lethal state, obsolete objects are brought back to life. The objects return to their material plenitude and are project into a renewed imaginary.
