  • About the artwork

    With the exhibition "Jeux de Maux", the Carole Kvasnevski Gallery and Jean David offer an artistic correspondence with the exhibition "Jeux de Clowns" From one evil to another, the artist asks us about the visible, the leaders, and the invisible, the silence of the victims which then becomes a scream of interpellation.

    This work is part of the exhibition "Jeux de Maux" presented at the International City of Arts in Paris in partnership with the French Institute and ENSAPC.

    Interpelled by the impact of abnormal violence of indifference and the passivity of the international community and governments on the situation of victims in the world and especially in Africa, a key topic around which Jean David Nkot structures his approach plastic. Giant postage stamps, envelopes and postcards, which constitute the bulk of his creations, question and shake consciences by exploring and exposing faces submerged by the names of weapons of war. Like postage stamps, his works are intended to free these victims marked by the violence of indifference that characterizes the complicit face of the world. Far from attracting the attention of the contemplator to the identity of the person represented, they rather highlight in the manner of Zhang Dali, Francis Bacon and Jenny Saville the expression of the turmoil inhabiting "his" characters.
