L’Homme et son
In L’Homme et son Environnement (The Man/Humankind and his/its Environment), Senegalese artist Babacar Traore digitally re-works snapshots to tell the story of the Buujukat, an architect of refuse.
The Buujukat is a person of creative intelligence, rummaging through the detritus of our lives and re-constructing it as useful. Through giving new life to trash, the Buujukat reintroduces what we have discarded into our individual and collective conscience, challenging the values of a consumer society addicted to disposal.
L’Homme et son Environnement closes on Wednesday 31st March, 2021 at 4pm.
