Project « Dérives de bord de mer » in Morocco
« Dérives de bord de mer » is born from the desire to produce a participatory piece in the public space in order to build new forms of sharing of the sensitive and collective speech.

Project « MUSO KAN » at Mali
The project “MUSO KAN”, a word for women in Bambara (Mali dialect), was born from the observation that women, who have a strong presence in our daily lives, are very often absent from artistic life. MUSO KAN wants to give back space to these women, to these mothers who give us life, and who look after us by joining them in their daily lives, in their world. Through an exhibition of 40 photo portraits and poems, they present and revive their memories, their dreams, their doubts, their hopes to the women of the Tontines of Kalaban Coro district in Bamako.

The Project « The Book Of Life » in Rwanda

The project « One day these names will be ours » in Ethiopia
The project “One day these names will be ours” aims to re-imagine the history of the Horn of Africa. The artist mixes vibrating and complex texture clothes with contemporary and everyday materials. Playing with the notions of the veil, as well as with shape and form, he creates images that are stranger and less affected by the physical resemblance, but which are still instantly recognizable by the viewers as a human being.

The Project “Car, vois-tu, tu as le droit d’être obscur” in Mauritusa
In the wake of the philosopher Édouard Glissant, Nirveda Alleck draws on the Creole culture from which she came to develop a work where the question of identity is central. Through painting, photography, video, installation and performance, the artist questions the feeling of belonging: what does it mean to be a member of a group? From a culture? From a territory? Of a particular space?
