Sénégal / Québec : Échanges?
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

With this video, Henricks and Pathé Sow present two realities : a Québecois/Canadian/North American context dominated by consumerism, speed (rushing), and a lack of openness towards other civilisations, and a Senegalese reality marked by poverty, and a thirst for wealth and ease. The video is based on images filmed in Senegal and Canada. The final work is the result of a conversation between Amadou Pathé Sow, a new immigrant of Senegalese origin and Nelson Henricks, a Montreal artist originally from Alberta.
