This exhibition engages us with Andre Dangno’s dreamlike visions, through his use of earth tone colors and textures within the body of his works. Andre identifies himself as a chronicler from the streets of lome, walking us through an uncharted path with images from varying points of view.
“If you look up your nose you’d see a multitude of details”; fragments of architecture, symbols and life’s mirages. He exposes metaphorical mirages within the lives of people in the streets whilst extenuating his narrative by exploring materials such as black polythene bags, jute sacks and ropes in his mixed media pieces.
He serves us as a journalist, with his tendency to abstractionism, he leads us to deeply introspect what we see within the corners of our own streets by conceptualizing social realities within the contexts of his works.
