Traffic Jam: the art of Tayou 0

His roots are Cameroonian, but he lives in Gand, Belgium. Pascal Marthine Tayou is a member of that generation of African artists who love re-shaping post-colonial culture and confronting, or even mixing, their original experiences with the new ones found in Europe.

It’s a perpetual re-definition of modern tradition. In the occasion of the cultural event Lille3000, held in France, Tayou proposes his audience a new version – a bit modified – of Human Beings, a lucky exhibition which was already shown in Venice in 2009.

Traffic Jam “is built by blocks of history crossing in the shadows and in the light,” says Tayou. “It is the reflex of my soul and a kind of extension of my atelier.”
